The purpose with this study was to show the relations between parents and youths from an adult perspective. We wanted to examine in what way the individualized society, limits and psychic health and unhealthy with parents could affect their youths. We chose to make a qualitative inquiry about this subject and had implemented interviews with social welfare secretaries, recreation leader and night walkers. To receive a deeper insight participant observation with night walkers, participant in parent education and participant in three different recreation centres was carried out.
Both writers were interested in relations and relations making between people, which led us in to the chose subject. We did not found any earlier research in the subject which made the investigation even more interesting. Our theoretical frame of referents consists of Paul Willis – Learning to labour, Zygmund Bauman - The individualized Society and Aaron Antonovsky - Unravelling the mystery - KASAM and theory of Gender.
From our collected material five interesting questions appeared and these questions are about individualization, psychic health and unhealthy, restricts, criminality and drugs and how to see the problems from where to draw limits in the modern society from a gender perspective. What was appeared in the interviews and the observations are introduced with quotations under the empiricism connected to the five questions. To make it easier for the reader a similar grouping under the analyses are made when the collected material have been analysed from the theorists we been used.
Setting limits have been a central word in the interviews and most of the interviewed agreed that youths require limits, but to day it seems to be difficult for parents. It have appeared in the inquiry that some youths does not have lots of limits from home, which we connect with the growing individualization and psychic health and unhealthy in today´s society.
