Download (935Kb)


    My diploma thesis is based on a research about mother-(adult) child relationship in divorced families, regardless of who has custody of children. In the theoretical part, I first defined and analyzed the concept of the family in general, then I focused onto learning about single-parent and reorganized families. I've studied how common divorce is nowadays and learned about the factors that trigger the divorce. I was also interested in what its consequences are for family members, with particular focus on the consequences of parental separation on the child. I also extended the notion of divorce to same-sex families. Then I focused on learning about mutual relations in the family and finding about the factors that lead to conflicts. I was also interested in how relationships in the family change when a divorce occurs and what happens to the relationship between mother and children. I created an empirical part on the basis of two interviews that I conducted with a focus group that included four girls, two boys and myself, as a co-creator. All participants come from a separate family and live or have lived with their mothers. From the interviews I learned that the separation has a great influence on the relations that are formed within the family. The participants confirmed that the divorce strengthened especially their relationship with mothers, and at least at the beginning, it also contributed to a better relationship with their fathers. I realized that girls with mothers are very closely connected and often offer emotional support, while the boys have a good relationship, but they are mostly helpers in their everyday tasks. I also found out that daughters have slightly better relationship with their mothers in comparison with relationship between mothers and sons or at least the quality of their relationship is described with different components. I also realized that mother-child relationship is influenced by mother's personality and by her way of facing problems.
