    Heyy,
    was wondering if someone could help me with planning an essay for this question....Examine the factors affecting the domestic division of labour and power relations between couples ??
    Slightly starting to freak out about tomorrow !!
    I would talk about the symmetrical family
    Parsons instrumental and expressive roles
    Botts segregated and conjugal roles
    The feminist view of housework (Oakley)
    Things like: dual burden, emotion work, commercialisation of housework, gershunys impact of paid work how full time women do housework and Barrett&McIntosh (something to do with decision making and money)

    I'm so scared for this exam!

    A lot of people seem not very confident with childhood so I thought I would help a bit.. We went through some questions in the lessons, here is the structure for question about childhood.

    Childhood:
    Assess the view that the position of children in British society has improved.

    Intro:
    • What is the overall trend (we generally think it has got better -> march of progress view)
    • Define childhood - it's a social construction, not universal
    • Important topic as children are the future of our society


    Part A: March of progress view
    • Aries (''mini adults''), contrast the past with today's notion of childhood as the golden age, society is child centred
    • Pilcher - separatness
    • Reasons for the changes (compulsory educations, laws restricting child labour, protecting children, benefits...)
    • Move from quantity to quality -> parents dedicate more time and resources to the fewer children they have, they are expected to make sacrifices for the children etc.


    Part B: Conflict view (child liberationists)
    • Palmer - Toxic childhood (technological and cultural changes are harming the children - teenage pregnancies, drinking drugs abuse etc. UK is on top of the international tables for these)
    • Gittins - Age patriarchy (control over children's space, time & bodies)
    • Also diferences between children (ethnical, gender, social class..)


    Conclusion: You can say something like childhood has largely improved but this has created new problems and briefly explain it.

    How would you structure an essay about Postmodernity and the Life course? How much would you write because there is a LOT of information on it.

    I'm not really sure about that one myself to be honest... They usually specify it in the question a bit more so you don't have to write absolutely everything. But if it is something like Examine the postmodernist view of the family, I guess I would do something like:
    • Define postmodernism (micro-structuralist, interpretivist etc.)
    • Hareaven - Life course analysis
    • Morgan - Family pracitces
    • Giddens - greater choice, thanks to contraception sex became the main reason for the existance of relationship -> law and tradition don't have as much impact on the way family is formed
    • Beck - Risk society (more choice means more awareness of the risks -> today's family is more diverse but also less stable) -> ''negotiated family''
    • Conclusion - much more diversity and it's all good and positive

    if demography comes up, do you have to know the actual numbers such as the uk population and how much it has risen, fell by blah blah blah?
    No you just have to make sure you say that the trend is that e.g birth rates have decreased or death rate decreased
