Abstract [en]

The everyday life for children with ADHD is affected by problems regarding inattention, impulsivity and hyperactivity. Parenting a child with ADHD consists of increasing demands in everyday life, which gives greater risks for poor mental health amongst parents. When working with a child with ADHD the occupational therapist work with the whole family, often focusing on interventions in the home environment. The aim of this study was to investigate strategies described by parents of children with ADHD to create a sustainable everyday life. A qualitative approach was used and data from 6 blogs about parenting children with ADHD, was analysed through a qualitative content analysis. The result was compiled into three main categories, Taking care of one self as a parent, Children’s needs and adjustments in everyday life and A new family life as a team. In the result it was shown that parents used strategies in an active way to manage their own well- being, to create structure to support their children, to reduce the amount of conflicts and to strengthen their children's self-esteem. An overall theme emerged The journey towards a new parenthood, that showed the process the parents went through via personal growth, awareness in parenting style and new expectations on family life. The result shown in the study emphasizes a perceptive parenthood to support their children, factors confirmed in previous studies. The result also wishes to highlight the parents own personal health as an important aspect. A sustainable everyday life was both an individual project for the parent, as a joint project for the family as a whole.
