Example text

Becker and Becker (2008) suggest that existing research on young adult carers is limited in its ability to provide answers to a series of critical questions about this group’s experiences and needs, including: what are the factors that affect the extent and nature of caring among this group? How do educational experiences and outcomes affect young adult carers’ choices and decisions about further and higher education? How are aspirations affected by caring roles and responsibilities? What specific support and services do young adult carers need and receive in practice?

However, these factors are likely to be context-specific and may vary cross-culturally (Howard et al, 1999; Schoon and Parsons, 2002; Evans, 2005). Many of the criticisms of the risk discourse could, however, be equally applied to the concept of resilience. Researchers have highlighted the danger of perceiving resilience as an individual attribute and labelling children as ‘resilient’ as this can lead to perspectives that blame the individual for failing to succeed or adapt well to adversity (Luthar 19 Children caring for parents with HIV and AIDS and Cicchetti, 2000; Schoon, 2006).

Similarly, Aldridge and Becker’s (2003) research with 40 families where a child was caring for a parent with severe mental illness found that children’s caregiving helped to allay some of the fears, concerns and anxieties that they had about their parent’s condition because it gave children control and direct involvement in the provision and management of care work. The authors suggested that in some instances caring helped to enhance 20 Children’s and young people’s caring responsibilities within the family parent–child relationships and helped children to feel included when often, outside the domain of the family, they were ignored and not recognised by health, social care and other professionals.
