Sociological Theories on the role of family by Theory: If you could describe your family in one wordwhat would it be? Theories of the family: Functionalism Some sociologists suggest the family is the best organizational basis for society. 4 functions of the family: sexual, reproductive, economic and educative (socialization). Primary socialization the teaching of societies shared norms and values, and the stabilization of adult personalities the family provides an arena for adults to let off steam then return calmly to

the outside world. What did you learn from your family BEFORE Kindergarten so you would fit in? 03/01/2020 22 Theories of the Family: Marxism Frederick Engels claimed the family only came into existence with the invention of private property. Without the family there could be no effective system of private property because parentage and inheritance would be impossible to determine.

The family is seen as a means of social control and reproduces capitalist society. The family is an exploitative institution. In modern day what happens to families financially when there is a divorce? 03/01/2020 23 Theories of the Family: Feminism There are 3 main strand of feminist thought: liberal, radical and Marxist All emphasize the central importance of patriarchy (male domination of society) to understanding the family. Liberal feminists assert the family serves the needs of men,

reinforces patriarchy and oppresses women. Radical feminists identify gender exploitation as the most fundamental form of domination. The family is seen as an economic system run for the benefit of all men. Marxist Feminists empathise the double exploitation of women by capitalism and men. Men take the frustrations born of alienated labor under capitalism out within the family sometimes in the form of physical violence. Can you give current day examples of any of these theories in the real world? 03/01/2020 24 Theories of the Family:

Interactionist Interactionists take more account of the meanings people attach to the family and the actions and interactions which take place within real families Who listens to who? Who makes the decisions? Who grounds you? What reasons would Mom ground you? Dad? Who decides vacations, spending? 03/01/2020 25

Theories of the Family: Radical psychiatry Roland Laing takes an interactionist approach and offers insight into the darker side of family life. Families are seen as the principle cause of mental illnesses like borderline personality disorder, depression, and other mental illnesses throughout life through negative labeling and scapegoating within the family. Are families the major cause of our psychological and emotional problems? 03/01/2020

Final Sociology Project Choose one of the below Sociology Projects and complete by January 18th 2012: Sociological Analysis of Age and Stage of Life: Interview three people of different ages. They can be family members if you wish. Ideally you would have someone in young adulthood, (maybe a college student or someone just moving out on their own), an adult with children ages 25 through 50, and an older person like a Grandparent over 60 years of age. You should prepare and ask them questions about What their goals were when they were younger, and did they reach them? How did their goals change as they aged?

Were there any life events that caused them to change their life goals? What are their current life goals for the future? What surprised them the most about life so far? What do they feel the best age is, and why? Sociological Analysis of Childrens Literature: Then & Now Visit a local book store and look at the childrens book section. Find book from when you were a child and look at them. You could bring a parent and they could do the same from their childhood if they like. Now find the most current childrens books and make a comparison on how children, childrens interests and lifestyles and the world itself has changed based on the type of books written for children today. Explain what your favorite books were and why and how they are the same or different than what is out there today. We currently live in a politically correct age. Design and complete the worlds most tolerant inclusive childrens book that includes as many groups, subgroups, cultures, sub cultures, counter cultures, and family patterns as possible.

Remember.the goal is to create a high school that will create an environment where adolescents will not only flourish, but be prepared to take care of themselves in the future.
