Abstract [en]

Background: Self- harm among children is a growing problem in Sweden. The behavior means that persons deliberately hurt themselves. It´s not only the child who suffer from this behavior, it also affect the parents and siblings. It’s important that the nurse can give parents the support and information that they need. Research is limited when it comes to parents’ experience of having a child who deliberately harm her-/himself.

Aim: The aim of this study was to illuminate parents’ experiences of living with a child with deliberate self-harm.

Method: A literature-based study based on analysis of ten qualitative articles was performed.

Results: The result are presented in three categories; "Feeling responsible", "Desire to be a better parent", "Feeling invisible and extradited"

Conclusion: Nurses need more knowledge about self-harm and how parents perceive their situation. Parents need more support and information from the nurse.
