children not possessions

"I think children in Scandinavia are looked upon differently to the United States or Britain. We do not classify them in terms of gender so much," SkarsgÄrd said. "We treat children with respect. They are not possessions of the parents."

Asked if he has wanted his eight children to grow up in Sweden, the actor replied that he is "not nationalist by any means," but remains "fond of the Scandinavian culture".

"It's a society that is decent. We pay high taxes, but we also get free education and health care. It's a society that is worthy of the name society, because that word means we're all living here together."
