Other Chapters For 12th


12th Class Chapter No 4 - Family in Social for IGCSE

Functionalists see the family as being integral to the ‘functioning’ of society, in the same way the heart is a basic need of the human body. Using this same principle the family is seen as a basic need for society, without it the society would fail to function properly.

Therefore in the same way the human body needs the brain to make sure all the other major organs work properly, society needs the family to function properly as it socialises children into the culture they live in.
