Abstract [en]

The objective of the essay has been the studying of the importance of religion for children. To answer and satisfy my objective, I have some questions: How do children talk about their own and others’ religions? In what way do children associate themselves to religion? Which meaning does religion have for children’s identities? Which thoughts rise about religiontuition in the school?

To answer the problem formulation, I have done a qualitative interview study with five children of different religious and cultural backgrounds in a Swedish communal school. The results showed that children’s thoughts about religion are mostly inherited from the parents. Religion and identity are close to each other. The children live in different worlds which  makes them not be apart of one or the other.

Religion is a sensitive subject that leads to a big silence among children and to the fear of talking or discussing the subject. Children can use religion as a tool for bullying.
