The method of the study was qualitative content analysis. The primary empiricad material for this study was the tv-program "Ung och bortskämd". Our theoretical framework was aspects of socialization according to Berger & Luckmann and aspects of self representation, shame and confirmation according to Goffman. The main conclusion was that the parents were presented as trying to explain away the various reasons why their children were "spoiled", instead of accepting the criticism. The representation of the relationship between the parents and the young adults was mostly that of conflict. Parents are shown to overcompensate with services, for various reasons and therefore exaggerate much of the basic care. The program presents that they treat their young like teenagers rather than adults that they really are or at least should be. (Less)
