This paper analyses the particular realities of 4 mothers and their young children. The paper aims to discuss mothers’ dispositions, both individually and as family members. Whilst bearing in mind their individual life-trajectories, the paper analyses how the concepts of habitus (Bourdieu, 2000) and intersectionality (Gill, 2007) help to understand the interconnections and interdependence of mothers’ gender, ethnicity, class, age, marital status and educational background with their children’s transitions. Thus, the aim of the paper is to analyse the impact of these categories on the resources and strategies mothers had regarding their children’s educative experiences.
