Abstract [en]

The present study explores how migrant, refugee children and parents contribute to and influence their own wellbeing and that of family members during resettlement in Sweden. The study starts from the notion that social and emotional wellbeing are relational, contextually formed, and subjectively experienced. Parents and children are equal contributors to influencing the wellbeing of the other. The study is based on individual interviews with parents and children from the Middle East. There is a reciprocal relationship between parent and child that emerges, where practices of love and caring, including helping out with chores and supporting each other in different ways, permeate everyday life. But there are also issues of concern and worry, particularly on the part of parents, about how the child’s present or future actions may stifle his/her chances of a better life, and about how contextual factors may restrain both parents’ and children’s aspirations for a better future, with negative implications for their wellbeing. Reforms must be put into practice that supports migrant children and parents in achieving their goals (i.e., employment, educational success, improved housing, increased wellbeing), and that acknowledge migrants as agents whose actions aim to improve their and their family members’ wellbeing and situation.
