The objective of this research is to investigate the practices that naturalize violence within the families of the children of I.E.D San Rafael (Kennedy). The foregoing, taking into account that the investigation is expected to be carried out within the framework of the Futuro Colombia program of the Attorney General's Office, whose objective is to support the prevention of the criminal behavior of children and adolescents in vulnerable situations. One of the factors that, according to the Prosecutor's Office, constitutes vulnerability in children and adolescents is domestic violence. It is understood then that the Office of the Prosecutor, as well as many of the entities that seek the welfare and safety of the population, assume a widely naturalized relationship: violent families are a condition of possibility for the production of violent children and adolescents. Because of this, the Crime Prevention Program Colombia, considers it pertinent to carry out an investigation that will allow it to know what is happening inside the families of some children and adolescents with the aim of finding tools that will allow them to qualify their prevention work. This being the case, qualitative research is chosen, as it approaches the practices that naturalize violence in families from the behaviors and perceptions of the subjects that participated, this in order to describe and understand their knowledge. Therefore, the historical - hermeneutic approach was chosen since it allows to understand these practices from symbologies, imaginaries and meanings, for this semi - structured interviews were carried out as a data collection technique. Regarding the findings, it was found that there have been changes in families, in terms of their composition, ways of relating between men, women and children and new forms of division of labor in the workplace and domestic. It is also important to point out that relations of subordination still remain and the ideal of having a traditional family predominates, invisibilizing any form of violence in order to sustain the union at the expense of everything. This is because women have subjected a series of violent practices, which they internalize and express through their discourse and actions. An example of this is evident in the responsibility assumed in relation to housework, being the person in charge even if he were in the workplace
