Since this well help me out with revision, Key sociologist to do with Childhood are:

Phillip Aries - He argues that prior to the industrial revolution children were seen as mini adults - sent out to work (coal mines, factories) They were not seen as innocent or in need of protection.

Sue Palmer- She talked about "Toxic Childhood". Children with ADHD suffer from poor diet, lack of role models therefore spend too much time on electronic media. In regards to parents, they spend too much time working which means a lack of relationship with their child. She also talked about Pester power. (Children getting what they want, when they want)

Niel Postman - He argues that childhood is disappearing and is in the process of being deconstructed. Children have access to adult stuff through media. He also said that adulthood and childhood are becoming blurred as they are wearing similar clothes.

Social Policies would include:
Divorce Act 1985
Gay Marriage/Civil Partnership
Compulsory Education
EMA
Children Act

Actually im not so sure on social policy my self, someone can correct me as im wrong. I'll go over it tomorrow morning lol

No problem, im doing the exam tomorrow aswell. Looks like we're both aiming for A's

Btw, Laws and Social policies which have affected children are:

Child Labour Laws 1820 - Prevent children working in certain industries and at certain times of the day

Compulsory Education 1870- Go to school up to the age of 18. Education enables them to have a better and healthier life as well as successful jobs for the future

Prevention of Cruelty to Children's Act 1889- Makes parents responsible for the well being of their child (food, shelter etc)

Children Act 1989 - Allows children to have more say. They can choose who they want to live with. Parents then have to accept that they have responsibility for their own children.

There are other social policies as well like the ones i mentioned, Gay Marriage 2014, Civil Partnership 1999 etc, but i'm guessing they would rather be used when talking about family diversity.

I wish you good luck !
