Abstract [en]

A theoretical model for everyday behavior is presented based upon ideas of choice and chance. Argumented is that most of our behavior is a set of activities based upon chance even when we in everyday language we call them made by choice. The Self acts spontaneously when no evident alternative is there and the activities are by chance, they just happen. The theoretical model is applied upon the phenomenon of parents leaving their children for a limited time to earn money for a decent survival.
