There are two possible questions which the examiner could ask you. 1) Outline and explain two ways - Mostly AS level. 2) Analyse two ways - Mostly A2 Level.
To get 10 marks isn't difficult proving your follow a solid structure and hit a certain criteria. To do this, I prefer the following structure below:
Write 2 of these paragraphs.
Let's go through the example and model paragraph below:
One way family structures may affect family structures is based on the fact that older people are living longer, it allows greater time for children to spend with their grandparents. Item C highlights that life expectancy is increasing which impacts many areas of the family structure. The New Right would take opportunity of this stating that the government should not be responsible for children. This consequence of this could be a reduction in benefits or support from the state. Currently, the Conservative Government has focused on changing the way single parents are treated in an attempt to promote a nuclear family. Nearly half of children from single-parent families live in poverty across the UK, compared to around a quarter of those raised by two parents. This forces single parents to use grandparents as a tool and mechanism to look after their children. Feminists would to some extent support this as it moved women away from the Triple Shift and Duel Burden allowing them to focus on work and become independent utilising multi-generational extended families, however, they would also criticise this concept because it comes at the consequence of not spending time with their child, potentially risking bonding and socialisation. This is integral as evidence suggests that a lack of support in the primary socialisation phase can lead to delinquency or an anti school subculture (Woods) because of a lack of support from home. This will only impact the person negatively resulting in negative grades.
