Disciplinary or curling upbringing : A qualitative study about which strategies four mothers use to raise their children (English)
Abstract [en]

The vast majority of parents want their children to succeed and become successful in one way or the other. The very first is that the child will graduate from school. In today’s society which is characterized by career-driven parents, especially mothers, one wonders if somewhere along the way parents are prioritizing their own careers over their children’s school achievements. This might be true in some cases, but in others it could merely be that parents are expecting more from their children’s future. Given that working days are getting longer, quality family time has become essential to most people. The purpose of this study is to find out which strategies mothers use to influence their children and if mothers education or background has no bearing on how they reason about their children’s future. This study was conducted using a qualitative research based on interviews. With the help of interviews, I will find out how and why mothers are using certain strategies and methods in their upbringing and if their backgrounds have been important to the way they raise their children. However, due to time constraints and the small size of the interview pool I can not make a generalization. The theories I use is based primarily on Bourdieu’s capital theory, which I think is best when the study primarily is to examine the strategies mothers use. My conclusion in this study proved that women use different levels of “curling” and discipline in their upbringing. However, it is common to all the woman in the study, that they use more love and emotions than what they themselves experienced as children.
