MAROTTA MENDEZ, Ana Cecilia et al. Care and educational accompaniment during home confinement due to COVID 19. The perspective of public school families. Psicol. Conoc. Soc. [online]. 2024, vol.14, n.1, pp.63-78.  Epub 31-Mayo-2024. ISSN 1688-7026.

The suspension of school attendance during the confinement period due to the COVID 19 pandemic, altered the daily lives of Uruguayan families and generated challenges for the educational accompaniment of children. This article analyzes the experiences of families in this period, emphasizing in the organization of care and activities to accompany and support the school of girls and boys, identifying obstacles and opportunities. In this qualitative study, was used as an initial technique, a self-administered questionnaire that identified aspects of the families experiences taken as a guide for conducting discussion groups. The online questionnaire was answered by a total of 278 family representatives of boys and girls who attended the 1st to 3rd year of public school institutions during the years 2020 and 2021. The main conclusions show that accompaniment from schools was perceived as satisfactory from the participating families. The difficulties encountered are mainly related to the type of educational proposal and mode of communication established with the teachers, the material conditions of the home (availability of electronic devices, connectivity, space conditions, etc.), and the disposition of time, affective and cognitive ability to teach or motivate their sons and daughters to learn. Rescuing the opportunity that meant sharing more time with the boys and girls, there is concern about manifestations of physical and psychological bother due to the situation of distance from daily school life and its requirements.
