Alleinerziehende: Die Lebensform Alleinerziehend, ihre by Judith Hesselink

By Judith Hesselink

Zwischenprüfungsarbeit aus dem Jahr 2007 im Fachbereich Pädagogik - Familienerziehung, be aware: 1,3, Technische Universität Dortmund, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: „Familie hat heute viele Formen. Im April 2002 lebten in Deutschland quickly eighty one% der Bevölkerung
in Familien, einschließlich Ehepaaren, die keine Kinder (mehr) im Haushalt haben. Rund
54 % der Bevölkerung bildeten Eltern-Kind-Gemeinschaften mit gemeinsamer Haushaltsführung.
Zur selben Zeit gab es 2,4 Mio. Alleinerziehende, darunter 87 % allein erziehende Frauen
mit minderjährigen Kindern.“ (BMFSFJ 2004: 74)
Obgleich nicht von einem allgemeinem pattern zum Single-Dasein ausgegangen werden kann
und Untersuchungen belegen, dass Familie und Partnerschaft nach wie vor einen hohen Stellenwert
einnehmen, verdeutlichen derlei statistische Werte doch deutlich, dass die Lebensform „Familie“ heute viele Gesichter hat und sowohl „von einer ´Normalisierung` nicht ehelicher
Lebensformen gesprochen werden [kann]“ (BMFSFJ 2004: 98), als auch von einer
„Entnormalisierung“ von Familienformen und Lebensverläufen (vgl. model & Hammer 2002:
13) ausgegangen werden kann.
Die vorliegende Arbeit fokussiert die Lebensform „Alleinerziehend“. Sie wird sich nicht nur
damit auseinandersetzen, in wie fern sich diese Lebensform etabliert hat und wie weit sie verbreitet
ist, sondern will vor Allem die Zufriedenheit der Betroffenen mit ihrer Lebenssituation
thematisieren, um so eine Aussage darüber treffen zu könne, in wie fern die Lebenssituation
Alleinerziehender ein Themen- und Aufgabenbereich ist, der auch für die Sozialpolitik von
Interesse ist. Diese Zufriedenheit soll sich allerdings nicht auf die bereits mehrfach untersuchte
Lebenszufriedenheit in Bezug auf die ökonomische und/oder berufliche scenario beziehen,
sondern vielmehr hinterfragen, ob sich Aussagen darüber treffen lassen, in wie fern der Entstehungszusammenhang
der Lebensform „Alleinerziehend“ und die Unterstützung durch soziale
und familiale Netzwerke einhergeht mit einem gewissen Grad an Zufriedenheit. Dazu muss in einem ersten Schritt geklärt werden, used to be die Lebensform „Alleinerziehend“
ausmacht, additionally auch, wie sich ihre gesellschaftliche Entwicklung und Anerkennung darstellt.
Im weiteren Verlauf der Arbeit werden zwei Studien über die Lebensform „Alleinerziehend“
dargestellt. [...]
