Strong girls and beautiful boys : A study about boys' and girls' identities influenced from a gender perspective. (English)
Abstract [sv]

I den här studien har vi undersökt hur vårdnadshavarnas och pedagogernas bemötande gentemot barnen påverkar deras identitet, samt om förskolans miljö har en inverkan på dem. I läroplanen för förskolan är jämställdhet ett skrivet mål som skall genomsyra verksamheten. Vi har använt oss av den kvalitativa metoden där vi genom observationer, frågeformulär och intervjuer har fått fram ett underlag till vår studie. Resultatet visar generellt att pedagogernas och vårdnadshavarnas förhållningssätt och handlingar påverkar barnens möjligheter och hur de ser på sig själva som pojke eller flicka. Även förskolans miljö har en inverkan på barns val av aktiviteter. Vi har kommit fram till att både vårdnadshavarna och pedagogerna bör bli mer medvetna om hur de bemöter de olika könen.

Abstract [en]

This study discusses whether the guardians' and educationalists' treatment of the children affects the children's identity. Moreover it looks at whether the preschool environment has an impact on them. According to the curriculum of the preschool gender equality is a written goal, which should be implemented throughout the preschool organization. We have chosen to use the qualitative method. In order to get material to our investigation, we made observations, questionnaires and interviews. The result implies that guardians' and educationalists' attitudes and actions are affecting the children's possibilities and how they view themselves as boys and girls. In addition, the preschool environment has an impact on children's choices of activities. Our conclusion is that guardians' and educationalists' should increase their awareness of how they treat boys and girls differently.
