Hospitalization is an alteration of daily family and social relationships for children and their parents. It is an alienating experience that places children and adults in front of feeling of loneliness, fear, and boredom, depending on the disease that led to a pediatric ward, the characteristics of the family and the temperament of the subjects. Families and children need support from competent professionals present in the pediatric ward, including teachers, prepared to welcome their requests, respecting the peculiarities that make a family different from the other, a boy and a boy different from the others. The paper therefore focuses on the issue of accompanying families in the path of hospitalization, highlighting the relationship with health care staff and teachers of the school in hospital.
