examine the notion that since the inception of the welfare state public policies have embodied the idea of the normal family. Public policy has promoted this type of family and penalised those families who do not ‘comply’ with the nuclear ideal... i want to know a good way to start and include Individualism
Idealism and structuralism to help explain how these policies affect the family structure.Also what theorists can i mention to help me explain this better. I just want to draw up a structural plan im so stuck with this question. anything is welcome, thanks !! xx

Are you trying to argue that the welfare state created the nuclear family? As in my sociology studies, I've found that the welfare state has been a large factor in destroying the nuclear family ideal. Perhaps if you could clarify the question?

thats what i thought but my question that i need to answer is ' Critically examine the notion that since the inception of the welfare state public policies have embodied the idea of the normal family. Public policy has promoted this type of family and penalised those families who do not ‘comply’ with the nuclear ideal'.
