We wanted to compare different group’s ways of describing the concept of resilient children, and therefore we chose to compare textbooks with autobiographies. The questions, on which we based our study are: How can the conception of resilient children be described based on textbooks and autobiographies? Which children can be categorized as resilient children (maskrosbarn)? How are these children able to handle long-term stress?
