Sammanfattning

In this study, how emerging adults talk about their parents' involvement in occupational and relational issues was investigated. Through the voices of emerging adults themselves, this study shows the various ways in which they experience and relate to their parents’ attitudes and expectations and highlights that in Sweden emerging adults perceptions of their parents ideas seem more explicit for occupational than for relational issues. 136 (68 women) Swedish 25 year-olds from a variety of social contexts were asked about their parents’ ideas and attitudes with regards to occupational and relational issues. Answers were analysed with thematic analysis. For occupational issues four main themes were identified: (1) Parents attitudes towards their choices, (2) parents involvement in their decision-making, (3) thoughts on parents attitudes and involvement, and (4) occupational choices compared to their parents’ wishes and own choices. For relational issues three main themes were recognized: (1) Whether or not they had an idea of their parents’ thoughts, (2) coherence between own and parents’ ideas, and (3) parents’ attitudes toward their ideas. In sum, for occupational issues some participants experienced that their parents had explicit wishes For what they wanted them to do. Others viewed their parents as a source of support and guidance while still not interfering in the process of choosing. A few individuals wished that their parents should have been more involved. For relational issues the emerging adults’ perceptions of their parents’ ideas were more often based on their parents’ actions and beliefs rather than on actual discussions.
