SILVA, Diego Rodrigues  e  HERZBERG, Eliana. Parental functions and constitution of body image: repercussions to children with phy-sical disabilities. Bol. psicol [online]. 2016, vol.66, n.145, pp. 135-143. ISSN 0006-5943.

The parental functions surpass child's needs, promoting subjective constitution that inserts him/her into the social bond. These experiences of the parent-child relationship shape body image that articulates with the biological apparatus, enabling the subject to have a particular control of the body. A physically disabled child may provoke impacts on the family dynamics, being important to consider what occurs from the point of view of this constitutive process. Therefore, this paper aims to discuss parenting and construction of body image in situations of physical disability. It was found that, in these cases, the maternal and paternal functions can be compromised being presented specifics of this relationship, such as the need to recognize the functional exercise in the child's own movements. The relevance of openness to understand parent-child relationship and the effects on their development are discussed

Palavras-chave : Physical disability; parent-child relations; body image; early childhood development.
