I’m working on a sociology discussion question and need support to help me study.
everything is explained below . chapter 11 & 12 are attached .
Discuss Family Pressures: Work, Childcare.
How do families juggle all the expectations and obligations that are put on them? This week we have learned about the stressors of WORK (at home and paid work) and the cost of CHILDCARE. Learning about how other countries handle these issues is an important piece of this chapter.
1) How does the instability of the workplace affect families? Part time work, seasonal work, low paid jobs with no health insurance or childcare, all play a part in family dynamics. Even people with advanced degrees find it very difficult to get full time work. Has your family been affected by the downturn that happened in 2008 or the current recession?
2) Since COVID we have seen many big companies filing for bankruptcy or getting rid of thousands of workers. This is a structural problem in our society, not because people don’t want to work. We see this is happening all around the world. In which countries are people better supported? How do they achieve this? What can we learn from these other places that may help our own economy?
3) Division of labor at home: do you see examples of gendered imbalances in your own lives? What type of jobs did your parents each do at home when you were growing up? What messages did you get about what chores were expected of you at home? Has that changed as you got older? Will you raise your children the same way that you were raised?
