To be on paternal leave. : An explorative study of men’s experiences of parental leave. (English)
Abstract [sv]

Studien syftade till att explorativt undersöka mäns erfarenheter av att vara föräldraledig samt till att få en ökad förståelse kring deras upplevelser av föräldraledigheten. Tio män som hade varit föräldralediga minst nittio dagar deltog i studien. Intervjuer användes för datainsamling tillsammans med en intervjuguide. En tematisk analys användes för att analysera datamaterialet. Ur analysen skapades tre teman som beskriver mäns upplevelser av att vara föräldraledig. Temana var: Att kliva in i en värld tillsammans med barnet, Förståelsen för partnern samt Traditionella könsroller. Ur berättelserna framkom bland annat att det krävs viss anpassning att hitta sin nya roll i en situation som tidigare tillhört kvinnans domän och att det kan vara svårt att bryta sig in. Respondenterna beskrev hur dem utvecklat en närmare relation till barnen tack vare föräldraledigheten. Vidare belyste respondenterna att gamla könsroller till viss del är framträdande och att inställningen till mäns föräldraledighet inte alltid överensstämmer med dagens diskussioner om ökad jämställdhet.

Abstract [en]

The study aimed at explorative describe men`s experiences of parental leave and to get a greater understanding of their experiences of parental leave. Ten men who had been on parental leave for at least ninety days participated in the study. Interviews where used in collecting data along with an interview guide. A thematic analysis was used to analyze data. From the analysis three themes that narrate men`s perceptions of parental leave were created. The themes where: To step into a world with the child, Understanding of the partner and Traditional gender roles.

The stories revealed among other things that it takes some adjustment to find their new role in a situation that previously belonged to the woman`s domain and that it can be difficult to enter. The respondents described how they developed a closer relationship with the children thanks to parental leave. Futhermore the respondents highlighted that old gender roles to some extent is prominent and that the attitude towards men´s parental leave is not always consistent with today´s discussions about greater equality.
