"Good Parenting" : A qualitative study about social welfare secretaries´ notion of good parenting and how they manage their room for action (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to get a greater comprehension of social welfare secretaries’ notion of "good parenting" and furthermore how this is expressed in evaluations of investigations regarding care of children. The empirics in this qualitative study were collected with the help of a vignette containing relevant questions. Moreover interview questions were answered at seven occasions. The interviewees were social welfare secretaries that worked with evaluations of care of children. The theoretical approach in the study was Yeheskel Hasenfelds theory on human service organizations along with grassroots bureaucracy that Roine Johansson’s translated and interpreted based on Michael Lipsky’s theory on street-level- bureaucracy. The result showed that good parenting according to social welfare secretaries is based on moral values that are reflected in society. In regards to how social welfare secretaries manage their room for action it is done differently in the context of freedom and limitations of the work involved.
