Oh for the case study one I just said the case study could be outdated and for the 3 marker about primary socialisation I just talked about how parents teach their kids from a young age the norms and values of society, like saying please and thank you so they don’t act in dysfunctional ways in public. The 12 markers were so good but I had to rush the last one about educational achievement

yeahh, the content analysis one i didn't really know what to write but i used a lot of information in the extract to explain- and then i talked about schools and secondary socialisation so they're socialising children to see boys as "heroic" and "adventurous" and girls as "caring" and "domestic focused". the case study one i have no idea what i wrote for that- i think that's the only question i didn't finish fully because i was getting so tired of waffling 😭
on the exam i put for one of the 12 marker i think the nucleur family i said its marxists think they reproduce workers but then i made a comment on education as i might've said hidden curriculum? i forgot but i wrote in capitals under "DON'T MARK DOWN IT'S A SYNOPTIC LINK" could i get disqualified? i'm super nervous now
Did anyone else use Charles Murray for the 2nd families 12 marker or did they use parsons warm bath theory ?

I used parsons and the Marxist perspective saying that the main function of the family is to benefit capitalism
