Many families, unconsciously and for influence of the prejudiced thought of the society, keep its son far from the social conviviality, leaving it isolated in the familiar environment. Using for this an surrounding stimulant, lover. (CYRENO, 2007; PRIOSTE, 2006). With the birth of a child with Syndrome of Down, the parents feel the weight of social, first preconception stops with proper them and later in relation to the child. as reaction, will present negative affection to its son as: rejection, shame, anger, penalty leaving it plain it second, thus living I fight it for the idealized son, arriving many times to renegar it. Feeling itself also guilty for generating a son with deficiency.

Presenting a discredit in the potentialities of the son, overwheling it as incapable. All these negative feelings harm the social, emotional and cognitivo growth of the child. (WEDGE, 2003). On the other hand, the superprotection also harms, and very, this growth. A time that when superprotecting it the parents are denying the right to become citizen, treating it as incapable, a perpetual child or even though as an invalid (RASP, 2002; PRIOSTE, 2006). The relation of the parents will positively influence the acceptance of the child with Syndrome of negative Down or, depending on as they are emotionally. Contributing in the same one ratio in the development of the child.

(PRIOSTE, 2006). The people with deficiency are vitimadas by this preconception, this ' ' doena' ' that quiet it makes one I ruin in its lives, summarizing them it its deficiency. What it is stigma? The stigma is not present in the person, much less in the deficiency that it comes to present. Stigma is more than swims what the fruit of the social relations. The people tend to see the different one to the established standards social, as incomplete, impure, incapable, reducing it its difference, not seeing it in its totality, that is, not to see it as a person.
