Sammanfattning

The article presents results from a study of sons and daughters of foster carers, and the impact of fostering on their lives. Children and young people participated in focus groups and discussion groups, and 684 answered a questionnaire. Eight were interviewed in-depth. The results from the study showed that sons and daughters of foster carers were highly involved in the fostering assignment. Most children and young people valued their relationship with foster siblings, but even though relations to foster siblings were good, fostering could imply complicated changes of everyday life. Sons and daughters of foster carers may have to cope with conflicts connected to behavioural disorders of foster siblings, and they gained knowledge about foster siblings problematic lives. Fostering also implied contact with natural parents of foster siblings. Such contact could challenge children’s and young peoples’ perception of adequate parenthood. For some respondents it was hard to become aware of the dysfunctional parenting, abuse and/or neglect their foster siblings might have been exposed to. The results from the study gave evidence of the need to acknowledge the contribution to fostering made by sons and daughters of foster carers, and also to recognise the impact fostering may have on their lives.
