Titel: Att växa upp med fostersyskon

– en studie om upplevelsen av att växa upp med fostersyskon som biologiskt barn i ett familjehem.

Författare: Bettina Eriksson och Johanna Bergh

Syftet med den här studien var att undersöka de biologiska barnens upplevelser av att växt upp med fostersyskon, vilken inverkan det haft på deras liv och hur det har påverkat relationerna inom familjen. Vi har genomfört fem kvalitativa intervjuer med kvinnor som idag är vuxna. Vi har analyserat materialet genom systemteori och ett symbolisk interaktionistiskt perspektiv. Vi kom fram till att de biologiska barnen hade en övervägande positiv syn på sin uppväxt. De upplevde att de har fått en ökad förståelse, en ökad empati och insikter de annars inte skulle tilldelats sig, vilket de upplevde som positivt. Det som påtalas och återkommer i flera av respondenternas berättelser var att de har fått mindre med tid med sina föräldrar efter dem blivit familjehem. Något som påtalas och eftersöks av respondenterna är att de ville vara mer delaktiga och sedda av socialtjänsten. Kontakten med socialtjänsten har varit mycket bristfällig. En slutsats som vi gör i studien är att de biologiska barnen inte alls uppmärksammats av socialtjänsten.

Title: Growing up with foster sibling

– a study about the experience of growing up with foster sibling as a biological child in a family home

Authors: Bettina Eriksson och Johanna Bergh

The purpose of this study was to investigate the biological children experiences of growing up with foster sibling, what impact it had on their lives and how it has affected the relationships within the family. We have conducted five interviews with women who today are adults. We have analyzed the material through system theory and the symbolic interactionist perspective. We concluded that the children had a predominantly positive view of his upbringing. They felt that they have gained a greater understanding, greater empathy and insight they would not otherwise assign to, which they perceived as positive. What was reported and repeated in several of the respondent’s stories is that they have had less time whit their parents after becoming family home. What was objected and sought by the respondent was that they want to be more involved and seen by social service. The contact with the social service has been very inadequate. The conclusion that we do in this study is that the biological children did not get attention of social service
