Is it dangerous to be a child? : A qualitative study based on interviews with children in first grade about what can affect the children’s play habits on the leisure home (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim of my study has been to investigate, based on the children’s perceptions, what obstacles and opportunities they encounter in the outdoor play at the leisure home, which affects their playing habits. I interviewed eighteen children during four interview sessions at a school in Stockholm, Sweden about their outdoor play habits at the leisure home. To investigate this, I have used affordance theory, which is linked to the physical environment and the social environment. Affordance is about what meaningful offers an individual perceives in an environment and its material.

The results showed that the children seem to be in a dangerous world according to the staff who set restrictive rules to protect them. The schoolyard, which should be a safe place in the other hand can contain several dangers that I have identified. The danger here are about the various factors that affected the children’s opportunities for physical activity. Previous research shows this fear of exposing children to risks is common in today’s society, it also shows how children’s opportunities for physical activity are diminishing.
