That helps so how are you going to find out the answer? Are you going to just look through the books and analyse them? Are you going to interview people? Questionnaires to children? Before starting on the methodology, you have to figure out the best way to answer your question

Me and my tutor decided it would be easier to just look through the books and analyse them (I’ve struggled quite abit this year don’t want to make it harder for me) ☺️ thank you for your replies so far by the way !

Ah ok! So it seems your doing qualitative rather than quantitative. I'm not familiar with the analysing way of doing research, so I'm not sure what you call it, but look on your library catalogue for Alan Bryman's book about research methodologies in social sciences - that book is amazing and explains all the different kinds of methods to help get you through your methodology chapter. Sorry that I'm not very useful - I've never researched in that way, so I'm not familiar with it I'm afraid!
