From one side depicting the dimension for its inside, that is a specific influence on inborn characteristics of children (the preciousness, the relation, the defenselessness, the immaturity and the imperfection) and far-reaching effects to their social development: the school (school career). From the other side examinations concern the aspect outside: for example that is of the legal aspect, mainly political (social policy, diversified normative acts, and in them the stigmatization or the model), economic (portraying large families as the economic calculation, among others applying the determination E.
