The relationship between foster parents and foster children : A qualitative study based on the foster parents perspective (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to examine what meaning foster parents give to their relationship with their foster children. The aim of the study is to answer the following questions:

  • How do the foster parents describe their relationships with the foster children?
  • What approach do the foster parents have to the fact that the foster placement is not meant to be permanent?
  • What meaning does it have for the relationship between the foster parents and the foster children that the placement is not meant to be permanent?

 

The result of this study is based on eight qualitative, semi-structured, interviews that were held with people who are, or have been, foster parents. As a theoretical framework action theory was used. The result show that some foster parents view the foster children as their own, whilst others don’t. The foster parents thought that a good relationship to the foster child is essential for the child's present and future well-being. Further, some foster parents suggest that the fact that the placement were not meant to be permanent created a distance between them and the foster children whilst others claimed that it didn’t have any effect on the relationship. All foster parents said that they tried not to think about the fact that the child might move back with its biological parents.
