Abstract [en]

Background:

Having a child with ADHD is exhausting for parents and other family members. The child can take a dominant role against the parents and any siblings may receive less attention. The nurse's response is relevant in meeting with parents because it can elevate or destroy the relationship between her, the parents and the child. Aim: Parent's experiences of having a child with ADHD with or without hyperactivity. Method: This study was based on narratives, which in this case means an analysis of biographies. Four biographies were analyzed by using Dahlborg-Lyckhage's (2012) description of analysis of narratives. Results: The study resulted in five categories and twelve subcategories. The result shows that parents' experiences of having a child with ADHD is emotional. Procedures in life is important to be able to deal with everyday-situations. Likewise, the social situations between parents and society are complicated to deal with. Conclusion: This study has provided information about parent's experiences of having a child with ADHD with or without hyperactivity. Parents need help and support from both caregivers and relatives. Procedures are important to get an easier life. The parents are living with many different emotions. The contact with the school, health care and other adults is complicated. Time for relaxation is important to recover. Treatment with stimulant medication is perceived as a dilemma. This study can contribute to better understanding in encounters with these parents.
