Abstract

This qualitative paper promotes a phenomenological understanding of how mothers from a low socio-economic environment (LSEE) envision, design and implement the future perspective of their relationship with their children. This single instrumental case study utilised two consecutive focus group discussions with twelve purposefully selected participants, through the World Cafe Method and Appreciative Inquiry: 1) to collect data; 2) as a research method that also facilitates change. Findings revealed difficulties envisioning a future. Dreams are clouded by parenting issues. Insight was gained that interaction influences relationships for the future. Support needed for interventions in building on strengths is highlighted.
