TRABAQUINI, Paloma dos Santos; ROSANELI, Caroline Filla; CUNHA, Thiago Rocha da  and  MUNHOZ, Cláudia Jaqueline Martinez. Fragilities experienced by children in boarding schools: bioethical reflection of the work Lost Childhoods. Rev. Psicol. Saúde [online]. 2021, vol.13, n.1, pp. 65-80. ISSN 2177-093X.

This study aims to reflect on the work Lost Infancy: The Daily Life in Boarding Schools-Prison (loosely translated), by Sônia Altoé (2008), seeking to highlight the weaknesses experienced in boarding school contexts in the 1980s in Brazil. The purpose of this reflection, retrospectively worked in the light of bioethics, in which the argumentative resources had as main bases the principles of the Universal Declaration on Bioethics and Human Rights (DUBDH), is to guide the issue of child protection as a permanent conflict in Brazilian society. It is a qualitative, descriptive study, using content analysis, which resulted in the elaboration of categories related to the conditions of vulnerability and deprivation of liberty; disrespect for autonomy and human dignity; discrimination and social stigmatization of children. The work's reflection highlights the historical weaknesses of childhood, generating a perspective on permanent ethical responsibilities in protecting these most vulnerable groups in society.

Keywords : childhood; human rights; institutionalized child; bioethics.
