    I find childhood so hard to remember any tips??
    Some Main sociologists for childhood are:
    Aries- beleives that childhood before industrialisation was seen as no different to adulthood. I.e children had to work like adults, Wear same clothes, participate in their leisure activities etc

    Benedict- childhood before industrialisation was basically based on work and children were not seen as vulnerable etc

    Shorter- high infant mortality rate in preindustrial times was a result of child neglect..

    Postman - childhood is disappearing in contemporary society-, not much difference between adults and children. Children exposed to too much i.e. through tv , internet

    Palmer - childhood is not disappearing- still evidence of children's separate games etc
    Opie- toxic childhood

    Hey guys,

    Does anyone have an estimate of what the grade boundaries could be for both papers and the overall AS course ? I know last year it was a 90 and a 60 mark paper and now it was 2 60 mark papers but I'm not sure on what the grade boundaries are. Apparently it's 160/200 to get an A based on last years

    Is the layout of the Families and Households paper the same as Education where there were 2x2 marks 1x6 mark 1x10 mark and 2x20 mark.
    Yes but instead of a 20 mark question on research methods its a 16 mark essay and a 4 mark question

    Yeah I'm pretty sure it was functionalism (or Marxism, I think you could use either) and I wrote about meritocracy and role allocation What about you?
