Title: To defeat the invincible – a salutogenic content analysis of superkids’ upbringing
Supervisor: Torbjörn Hjort Assessor: Elizabeth Martinell Barfoed

The purpose of this paper is to examine and analyze three so called superkids’ upbringing with the assistance from a salutogenesis perspective. We intend to research what factors the children express as positive and important during their childhood, in order to reach the emotional aspects in their descriptions. We have been using a qualitative method; a case study in the shape of a content analysis of three autobiographies, to reach the personal experiences which the authors describe.

The purpose of this paper is to examine and analyze three so called superkids’ upbringing with the assistance from a salutogenesis perspective. We intend to research what factors the children express as positive and important during their childhood, in order to reach the emotional aspects in their descriptions. We have been using a qualitative method; a case study in the shape of a content analysis of three autobiographies, to reach the personal experiences which the authors describe. We have used an inductive approach, in which we have focused on the manifest content of the text. We have primarily attempted to identify structures and developing themes, concepts and categories. We decided to limit our selection to autobiographies written by authors borned and raised in Sweden, to avoid societal differences in welfare systems. All three books are written by non-famous women. The factors which was found to be particularly important for the authors during their childhood, is social and emotional support from adults (including their own parents), breathing space, own constitutional strength and hopefulness, and the affection they have experienced with friends and other relatives. We have also noticed a theme around ambivalence toward the parent-/parents. It has been shown that these superkids strongly are fighting to hide the wounds inside them. Even though many of them are craving for attention and affirmation because the lack of encouragement and well-apprehended care, they have been schooled to never put their own needs in first place. Our result shows that the authors as children have had an awareness of their family’s real problems, and that they also have had the ability to understand the injustice of their situation. These factors have seemed to be really important for these children’s development of resilience. (Less)
