Transcript of "Revision"

  1. 1. Revision<br /> The Family<br />
  2. 2. Question<br />What is a beanpole family?<br />
  3. 3. Answer<br />Beanpole – in countries like Britain and the US, the number of children per generation has steadily gone down, while life span has increased. This has led to a shape of family tree that some researchers have likened to a beanpole — tall and thin, with few people in each generation. The term beanpole family has been around in the academic literature at least since 1987, but it rarely appears elsewhere.<br />
  4. 4. Question<br />What is meant by the term social construction of childhood?<br />
  5. 5. Answer<br />Childhood as an age status is not fixed or universal.<br />The experience and meaning of childhood differs across societies, time periods and between different groups.<br />Childhood is therefore socially constructed – it is shaped by society. <br />
