In Granqvist's (2004) research, interviewees speak very critically about their parents, sometimes as if they were present in the room or within reach. This can probably be demonstrated to some extent in this material as well. There is no reason to question respondents' stories about a difficult upbringing in many cases. One thought, however, is whether in some cases or to some degree, it may be that the past is painted in something too dark colors in relation to the bright, explained worldview that respondents acquired later in life. A kind of contrast effect.
