Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to investigate how much influence children perceive and feel that they have in terms of after-school activities and offerings. I have also tried to find out how much influence the children in the selected after-schools feel they have. This is to highlight how children themselves perceive their influence and if the children are aware of their rights in terms of participation and influence. The study also wants to highlight the forums and the ways in which children feel that they are heard. The study used questionnaires and group interviews were made of 15 children aged 8-9 years from two after-schools, located in two different schools in the same municipality. The results revealed that children's views of their influence differed between the two schools. At one after-school investigation revealed a fairly widespread discontent while children in the other after-school were very happy with their influence. The study has also revealed that the teachers' role makes a big difference to how children perceive their influence and involvement in the daily operations.
