Children's reactions to the corona closure in the spring of 2020

For the children, the corona closure spring 2020, meant less contact with friends, loss of regular routines related to school and leisure activities and more time at home with parents. In an article published in the European Journal of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, we examined how children's experiences of home schooling, family turmoil, screen time, loss of friends, and concerns about infection were related to how they responded to the shutdowns. The children were generally less sad and scared, but at the same time reported more difficulty concentrating and sleeping problems.

Patterns of parental conflict in different families

In the spring of 2020, we published an article on parental conflicts and patterns within and across family forms when family patterns are challenged. Previous research on parental conflicts shows that how parents argue, has a greater impact on children's well-being than whether they argue or not. We therefore wanted to find out whether typical characteristics of parental conflicts vary between different family forms. The findings showed that there were some clear differences, both in what the parents argued most about, and how they argued.

Results from the pilot project to FamilieForSK

A pilot project for The Dynamics of Family Conflict Study was carried out in 2015 and 2016 (funded by the Directorate for Children, Youth and Familiy Affairs (Bufdir).

A selection of families participating in the Norwegian Mother, Father and Child Survey (MoBa) were invited to participate. In addition, a small group of families who attended mediation in the family protection service were invited. In total, mothers, fathers and children from a total of 389 families participated in the pilot project.

The results from the pilot project have been used to assess whether the measurement methods we use are suitable for Norwegian conditions, as many of the questions we use in the interviews and questionnaires have previously only been used in countries other than Norway. This has, among other things, been investigated in an article published in the Journal of Abnormal Child Psychology.

An article has also been written from the pilot project comparing parents' and children's reports of children's reactions to parental conflicts. Here, the researchers find that parents underreport children's reactions to parental conflicts compared to the children themselves. The article is published in the Journal of Family Psychology.

 

Three master's theses are based on the data collected in the pilot project:
