Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to create a new understanding of health promotion activities in the classroom setting through children's perspectives. Nineteen Swedish schoolchildren, ages 10- to 11-years-old, participated in health promotion work in the classroom. Through drawings and an exhibition discussion analysing their own and each other's drawings, they shared their lived experience of well-being and lack thereof. The phenomenological analysis resulted in three themes: (1) friends in good times and in bad; (2) the sunny side of life; (3) the bad and the mean. These themes were understood as friendship being like an extra parachute. Reflecting on the children's lived experience of well-being and our own role in the research process, the concept of openness surfaced. This we believe is an important ethical aspect of research with children.
