Functionalism and teenage pregnancyWatch
doing an essay on whether or not people choose to live in poverty. One of my points I'm using is teenagers choosing to have children. I'm trying to link teenage pregnancy in with Functionalism. I keep finding conflicting things about it;
1. Durkheim was into his traditional families, teenage pregnancy wasn't much of a thing back when he was writing and would consider such teenagers as living in an anomie
2. Durkheim however would see a benefit in teenage pregnancy as it would result in more workers etc?
In a complete pickle about it all. Any help would be appreciated.
Good luck with your essay!
