Transcript

  • 1. AS Sociology: Family Diversity
    Chester and the Neo-Conventional Family
  • 2. Chester: The Neo-Conventional Family (1985)
    Saw family diversity, but did not think of it as very significant or negative as did the New Right.
    The only important change was the ‘move away from the conventional nuclear family structure’ to the neo-conventional family.
    Chester defines the neo-conventional family as a dual-earning family in which both spouses go out to work.

    Get into groups of no more than 4 people.
