The main objective of this research work intends to offer a new reflection on the analysis of the educational relationship. The objective of this study is to evaluate models of family relationships through the test of family of Corman (1967) examined through the steps of the coding system: Cohesion, Spacing, Value and Similarity (Bombi and Pinto, 1993, 2000). The test was administered to a group of 264 subjects: 138 are females and 126 are males (M-age = ± 8.67) of the primary school and the first grade of secondary school level who were asked to draw the family, a fictional family, their real family and their family as animals. To find information on the construction of the social-demographic context of the group, it was administered a questionnaire. The work is structured in two parts. In the first part, there is a historical and critical survey on the birth and development of children’s drawings and family psychology. The second part presents an empirical research that analyzed the drawings through multivariate statistical analysis and Pearson’s correlation coefficient to investigate the relationships between the parents and the subjects in relation to the coding system scales. This study shows that in the draw of the large and less educated families was significantly the hierarchical relationship model in which every parent plays out own responsibilities, roles and functions. These families play the movement of economic and relational resources by opening up new ways to decline reciprocity, solidarity, power and dependence. In the draw of the nuclear and highly educated families was significantly the psychological autonomy models in which both parents have an independent attitude. This relationship allows for changes in exchange relations within the family and greater autonomy between genres and generations.
