Barns tankar om vuxna på fritidshemmet: Intervjuer med barn från tre fritidshemsavdelningar
Independent thesis Basic level (university diploma), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
The aim of this study is to become aware of how the children at the after-school care perceive the adults at after-school care. The most interesting parts are to find out what they thought made a good teacher, which qualities were preferable and how the children expressed their opinions. The children often spend long time at the after-school care which means that the children’s work environment matters. The children look at adults from another perspective and see other qualities than adults see in each other. When adults become aware of how children see them it can be important knowledge in the pedagogic work. The study was carried out in three after-school units with children aged 6-9 and with some older children that don’t go to the after-school care anymore. The study was conducted using qualitative interviews with low standardizing and observations. In the study the phenomenological method were used, that focuses on how children see their surrounding world and how they can describe it. In the literature issues as children’s perspective and attachment, which I think matters in how children see their surrounding world, and issues as atmosphere and professional skills. The result of my study shows that children appreciate adults that are kind, devoted and responsive. The adults who have the ability to see things from a child’s perspective and who are both kind and strict at the same time, those are the adults most liked by the children. The children do not like adults screaming, angry or to controlling.
