Size:  512.6 KBCan anyone please help me with making three points, at least two of the points have to be from the item that is attached.
    The question is “applying material from item A and your knowledge, evaluate the usefulness of structural approaches (functionalist, Marxists, feminists and the new right) to our understanding of families and households.”

    The new right places a lot of focus on the family structure (e.g - he doesn't support single mothers as he doesn't like that structure) but doesn't take into account the instances where although there are two parents it could lead to domestic abuse, child neglect etc. Functionalists see the family through 'rose tinted glasses' - again, they focus on the structure as to how able a family is to meet it's needs/functions, but doesn't take into account the implications of 'the dark side of families'.

    I don't really know how helpful that is, but I've just started AS Sociology on the same specification! Good luck
