This is an examination that investigates how parental guidebooks advise parents on how to solve conflicts between them and their children. The main purpose of this essay is to examine what these parental guidebooks say about rebuke. The following four questions will help to answer the main investigation. These questions are:
- What do different parental guidebooks write about rebuke?
- What do parental guidebooks consider to be the goal of rebuke?
- Which are the consequences of rebuke according to the parental guidebooks?
- Are there any clear patterns and connections that can be shown?
To find an answer to these four questions, I have used eight parental guidebooks. The earliest is from 1959 and the latest is from 2008. These eight parental guidebooks I used content analysis. The theories used to help interpret the analysis are a simplification of the hermeneutic view and the sociocultural perspective. I have used the concepts of development and preunderstanding. Three important keywords are preunderstanding (förförståelse), development (utveckling) and rebuke (tillrättavisningar).
My conclusions in this examination are that all the parental guidebooks agree that physical punishment is not the solution. They all agree also that rebuke should result in strong and confident children. What the exact solution should be is something that they do not agree about.
