    There's a research method section one question worth 4 marks and one question worth 16 marks and the rest of the questions are on families an households
    How would you structure the research methods question? And how long should it be

    the neo conventional family is the modern nuclear family - similar to the symmetrical family but just has a different name really

    it just basically means that the nuclear family has the same structure but the roles within the family have changed - e.g. it's more equal now than it was before according to some functionalists (I think!)
    Also the fact that women and men have joint/shared conjugal roles so there is equality in the relationship rather than the traditional n/f where the women and men take specific roles

    Our teacher told us to use PERVERT when structuring the 16m essay and I would write about 4 paragraphs

    increased pressure on welfare, as old people need to be cared for, eg NHS
    Also, burden upon the dependency ratio, more people working to pay for welfare

    I don't think demography would appear. It appeared last year and it was on the ageing population. I'm honestly hoping for childhood or divorce lol I know more theorists in these topics
