Abstract
It´s a general opinion that stress among children is something that has increased
(Stressforskningsinstitutet, 2015). This study aims to investigate opinions among parents
about their knowledge in the subject. The study also aims to look at strategies parents
use in their everyday life to prevent stress in the family, and how competent parents feel
to protect their children against stress.
A questinnaire was handed out to parents of children from six to seven years old,
in a small comunity in the South of Sweden (n=166). The empirical material shows that

a majority of parents, 65.7%, think they have a good knowledge about stress among
children and 69.9% use strategies in their everyday life. 42.8% think they can greatly
protect children against stress and 53% think they can protect to a lower extent. We
found a significant relationship between parents who think they have good knowledge
about stress in children, and the use of strategies. We also found a relationship between
the use of strategies and the trust in ability to protect the children against stress. Women
are more likely to use strategies in everyday life than men.
