The paper aims to present, through a pedagogical approach, the concept of family generativity, without neglecting its limits and critical points. In addition to E.H. Erikson’s well-known studies, the concept of generativity occupies a crucial position for some scholars of symbolic-relational area, who explain it as an essentially relational construct: it is the value of the relationship between the generations. The analysis underlines how the intergenerational dimension, which traverses the couple and the family, is at the origin of the family generativity as it develops and grows thanks to the donative sources within the family systems. Therefore, it’s a task that delineates itself as essentially educational. The paper concludes with the proposal for an education to generativity adequate to present times.
