A person orients her engagement in weak and flexible bonds. These bonds are made of relationships in which people become easily interchangeable elements; in this context dynamism represents a dominant factor. Families, too, are subject to this type of interpersonal exchange, in this way their relationships with the outside world no longer represent, as in the past, a safe resource The use of new forms of communication tends on the one hand to isolate individuals and on the other to become an easy resource to draw information from or to create virtual social nets with. The participation to thematic forums, the reading of websites and blogs creates a new way of being in relationship and of orienting one’s own behavior. The proposed research poses as an explorative inquiry on the narrative repertoires used by parents who, disoriented, ask the virtual community for advice.
