Abstract [en]

The aim with this study was to gain knowledge about how parents who are visual impaired experience and manage the meeting with the world around them. To have children and to be visual impaired creates a complex situation. There is not only the problem how to manage the parenting in technical terms. The disability is also filled with stigma because it diverges from the norms of society. There is not only demands from society about how the parent should behave, the parent also create demands of themselves. Eight parents who are visual impaired were interviewed in the study. They had children who were between zero and eighteen years old. There were six mothers and two fathers. Our choice has been to enlighten our framing of the question with Goffman’s theory of stigma and Giddens theory of norms and values. Because of the lack of previous research on this subject we have used contiguous research which can be connected to our study. We have found that the people we have interviewed have to fight for their right to be a parent and that the struggle to overcome the weak position that they are in is constant. The knowledge about parents who are visual impaired is limited in the world around them. Our conclusion is that more knowledge is the key to a better treatment as are decreasing the stigma.
