  11. 11. Key points: • Conservative Commentators: Most influential in 1980’s when Thatcher was Prime Minister. • They believe help from the government encourages people to become lazy. A free market, with competition, on the other hand encourages people to work hard, then if people fail or are poor it is there own fault for not working hard enough. • Traditional Nuclear family is ideal for society: Men should have the instrumental role – roles of men and women should be separated. • The family should be heterosexual and based on marriage rather than cohabitation. • Over generous welfare benefits to single mothers which allows fathers to opt out of their responsibilities for raising and providing for their children. • The influence of feminism which has devalued marriage, domesticity and childbearing, and encouraged women to seek fulfilment outside the home. Charlotte Russell Bilton School
  12. 12. Key points: Evaluation • Similar to Functionalism that the Nuclear Family is beneficial to society.  Offers solutions in the form of changes to social policy for the breakdown of the family and it’s impact on society.  Blaming the victims: tends to blame the victims for problems that are not of their own making.  Value judgements; Families different to the nuclear family are seen as inferior. Group all single-parent families together and criticise them. There is little or no evidence that lone parent families are part of a ‘dependency culture’.  An idealised view of the past: New Right thinkers want to return to golden age of the family that never really existed.  Feminists argue that the New Right hold sexist views on women Charlotte Russell Bilton School
