    Hi guys

    I found this YouTube link that seems very helpful

    https://youtu.be/S1K01SJ_ngk

    He explains everything well and has planned out some of the stuff teachers have been predicting including demographic changes, postmodernism etc
    Hahahaha looooooool. This is the guy who I requested to make the video. OMG

    I think you really need 2 paragraphs because the 17 marker usually has 2 reasons...

    This is a 17 marker I've started now, going to add 'beanpole families' for the second paragraph
    Identify and explain two ways inwhich demographic changes impact family life (17)
    Define ‘demographic change’
    Demographicchanges are social characteristic trends of the overall population that canhave an effect on family life. Issues relating to class, age, gender andethnicity usually affect people living in the society and any changes in thesefactors can affect the agent of socialisation that is the family.
    Ageing Population
    Generallythere has been an increase in the number of older people compared to theyounger generation due to an increase in life expectancy (one quarter of overall populationis elderly) and a declinein the birth and fertility rate which means that fewer children arebeing born. Between 1984 and2009, the population ofpeople over the age of 65 increased from 15% to 16% and this socialtrend has an effect on family life. One negative outcome of an ageingpopulation can be the subsequent ‘care issues’ that debate who the overall care of the elderlyfalls upon. The ‘dependencyratio’ shows that an increasing number of people beyond the retirement ageplaces economic burden on those of working age. Usually, women take up theemotive role of caring for those older than them in conjunction with their ownchildren resulting in an upward and downward care for those left in the middle.Grundy and Henrettaclaim that a ‘sandwichgeneration’ is formed which involves women who end up caring for theageing population which links to the gender norms in patriarchy (Greer) whereby the women infamily are left to be exploited because of their ascribed role as wives,mothers and daughters. Oakleytherefore argues that the ‘invisiblework’ conducted by women who care for this social change through anageing population results in their efforts not being acknowledged thus makingfamily life a burden.

    Identify and explain two ways in which demographic changes impact family life (17)

    This type of Question involves two reasons. This is my sample answer.

    Ageing Population: The ageing population has increased over the years with studies showing that between 1984 and 2009 the ageing population has increased from 15% to 16% whilst the population for under 16 years of age has decreased from 21% to 19%. The main reasons for this is because of the falling death rate and falling fertility rates. One way an ageing population can have an effect on families is economically. An ageing population could cause extra economic burden on adults who are at working age. This is because adults with children would have to provide financially to look after and care for both the elderly as well as children, since the elderly become unable to look after themselves and require assistance. While children are also dependent on their parents. This causes the father who is normally the breadwinner to work harder which could eventually cause him to work for longer hours for more pay to keep the family financially stable. While the burden is more particularly heavy on women as they perform the emotional and domestic work to take care of their elderly parents and children. This research is also proven as Emily Grundy and John Henretta found a sandwich generation of women caring after their elderly parents and children simultaneously. However there are also positive affects of an ageing population. for example Grandparents can provide valuable support and help by interacting with grandchildren, which can help strengthen extended kinship networks. Julia Brannen also believes the intergenerational links between grandparents and their children and grandchildren are strong and important in the beanpole family.

    Family size: Between 1971 and 1998, one person household increased from 18% to 29%. This has meant that there are fewer relationships and a decrease in birth rates because as family size is reducing the number of members in the family are getting smaller. This has also lead to an increase in one person households. There are various reasons for the increase in one person households. Rising divorce rates has meant that many people prefer to live on their own as their marital life had broken down and thus decide to set up a household on their own. The increase in geographical mobility makes it easier for people to move about and this gives the opportunity for people to live on their own. Increase in employment opportunities has made it easy for women to work and financially afford to live on their own. A growing number of the older people are also living alone who are also widows or widowers due to increasing life expectancy. The increase of old aged women are more likely to live alone because in old age women have longer life expectancy than men. Younger people tend to live alone with more men living by themselves because women are more likely to be lone parents than men and so live with one or more children. Sociologists Beck and Beck Gernishem link this attitude of wanting to live alone a process called individualization where people are seeking greater freedom and as a result of seeking of independence.

    What do you think will come up?
    Talking to teachers and fellow pupils:

    For the 17 marker

    -demographic changes affecting family life
    -family diversity (decline of conventional nuclear family)
    -fertility

    Stuff like cohabitation, marriage rates, divorce rates and single parent household has been pretty common

    For 33 marker:

    I've been told to focus on postmodernism and new right

    -changing roles between parents and children

    -perhaps feminism because it last came up 5 years ago

    This is really good; from reding examiner reports, more theory, depth and studies is key to higher marks

    Thank you! But I am feeling abit iffy on the 2nd paragraph. It does not really say how family size impacts family but instead I state the reasons. So I am really not sure if that would get me marks. What do you think?

    I think stating the reasons is going into depth which examiners really like. Maybe to cement your argument, keep adding a connecting sentence such as "... This is why an increase in single parent households has an affect on family life" so you refer to the question at hand

    YH I guess it won't because it was the 33 marker- I'm also not focusing on Marxism and functionalism because they have been pretty common
