Abstract

In hierdie studie is die alledaagse bekommernisse en laerskoolleerders se hantering daarvan verken en beskryf deur die benutting van 'n beskrywende kwalitatiewe navorsingsontwerp. Dertig laerskoolleerders in hulle laat middelkinderjare (tien tot elf jaar) is in 'n spesifieke skool deur 'n eenvoudige ewekansige steekproef geselekteer. Data is deur die voer van semi-gestruktureerde, een-tot-een onderhoude ingesamel. Die data-analise is volgens Braun en Clarke se metode van tematiese analise gedoen. Temas en subtemas is gevolglik geïdentifiseer en bevindinge is met verwysing na relevante literatuur geverifieer.


Die bevindinge van die studie dui daarop dat bekommernisse op intra- en interpersoonlike vlak ervaar en hanteer word. Op intrapersoonlike vlak is bekommernisse geïdentifiseer oor sekere emosies wat ervaar word. Hantering op hierdie vlak geskied deurdat die deelnemers verkies om alleen te wees; hulle probeer nie aan bekommernisse dink nie; huil, skryf of teken in dagboeke; deur gebed, eet of te slaap. Op interpersoonlike vlak is bekommernisse rakende die skool, die gesin, vriende en verlies geïdentifiseer. Hantering op hierdie vlak geskied deur tyd te spandeer met gesinslede; vriende; die media; troeteldiere of deur vir ondersteuning by die skool te vra.
Aanbevelings word gemaak dat skole sekere aspekte ten opsigte van skoolklimaat en verhoudingswelstand in ag moet neem om skoolleerders te help om alledaagse bekommernisse te hanteer en so moontlike gesonde ontwikkeling bewerkstellig. Daarom is dit belangrik dat skole en ouers bewus gemaak word van kinders (laerskoolleerders) se alledaagse bekommernisse en hoe hulle dit hanteer, sodat die laerskoolleerders beter ondersteun en bygestaan kan word.


Ordinary daily worries and how these worries are managed by primary school learners were explored and described in this study by making use of a descriptive qualitative research design. Worries form part of most children's everyday development and can influence their functioning and development if they are not supported properly. It is therefore important that parents and teachers should be aware of these worries, in order to help their children to manage them effectively. The goal of this study was to determine the ordinary daily worries of primary school learners in a specific school and to determine how these primary school learners cope with these worries. Data obtained will be used to help parents and teachers cultivate awareness so that children can be better supported in managing their worries.
Thirty primary school learners in their late middle childhood (ten to eleven years old) in a specific school were selected by a simple random sample. Data were obtained until saturation of data occurred by making use of semi-structured one-on-one interviews. Data were analysed by means of Braun and Clarke's thematic analysing method after which themes and subthemes were identified. The findings of the study were verified with reference to relevant literature. The findings showed that all the participants experience daily worries, and that they manage these worries in different ways.
