    This is basically the key points - there aren't many names except for the perspectives as most of it is just the policies introduced. If it came up as a 20-marker, I imagine it'd be 'assess the extent to which social policies support the nuclear family' and discuss both sides and mention the perspectives as well. Hope this helps!

    Oh thats a shame. Guessing you arent OCR for History then? I was told it was just our predicated grade. But say you do 4 for example, the one you drop will go on your UCAS form.

    Assess the view that an ageing population creates problems for society. How would you answer this?!!!
    Well perhaps start out in the intro by talking about trends that are causing an ageing population. (Increasing life expectancy, declining IMR, declining fertility therefore fewer young people being born compared to amount of elders etc)

    Paragraph 1: Then I would go for the feminist perspective. This para would mention the fact that an ageing population would mean that the children of the elders are more likely to take them in to care for them, this burden is often placed upon the woman. Etc.

    Paragraph 2: Then I would contrast and argue that having grandparents at home can be a great contribution to the family (can assist with childcare, emotional and financial costs)

    Paragraph 3: My next para would be about the effects on the dependency ratio. This is due to more money needing to be spent and poured into the ageing population (goods and services) which will come out of the working class' pocket. You could argue from a Marxist perspective here as a burden would be placed on the working population.

    Paragraph 4: I would reiterate about public services but explain that because more money would be thrown into things like the NHS for the elderly, some may argue that this is a waste because, well, they're old and money could be spent elsewhere. Feminists may argue that more money should be spent on centres and facilities for women suffering from domestic abuse or rape etc.

    You could also add about New Right thinkers getting up in arms because less younger people are being born and there's more older people. Therefore the nuclear family is being undermined and replaced by an extended family.

    Mention statistics to fill out your answers more and just wrap it up in a conclusion! Hope this helps x

    Thats really helpful but what would you use to evaluate and critise these? like in education the question was on external factors so you would counter that with internal factors?x

    I mean, I don't think that there are "internal and external factors" to apply to the family in the same way as it happens in education - I think you evaluate by proposing two sides and using analysis. Like for example, the first paragraph was supporting the statement that an ageing population can harm society but then the next one was arguing the other side. Use statistics such as "in an RIAS study (2012), it was discovered that Grandparenting was responsible for saving nearly 11 billion pounds on childcare costs over a year".

    You could use a post modernist perspective because they're all about family diversity and sociology of the personal life perspectives if you wanted more to contrast with the other side of the argument.

    Ohhhh okay! ☺️ And honestly no, I have this fear that if I rolled with the predictions then it would end so badly! I think my teacher is probably keen on demography and sociology of the personal life - I definitely heard her mention the latter.... Personally, I'm praying for childhood to come up but apparently it came up last year!I feel like, because the paper for education wasn't horrendous (I mean except the 10 marker what a joke lmao), I have a fear that they will go mental with the family paper. I really hope they will be nice to us lol I don't know how much information I can absorb!!

    Is the sociology of personal life wth couples ?? Like the meanings attached to who controls money etc

    My teacher also predicts demography and they were spot on with the education ones even the method for methods in context was one my teacher kept telling us to focus on
    Yeah i do think the paper wont be a nice one because the ed one was so good
