The article is an analysis of the social structure of the youth in the society. It tries to enquire the relationship that exists in the social structure of youths in relation to the family. The article is an engagement of the sociology of the youth to the wider sociology, with reflection to the challenges that the future faces, and the relationship between the youth and their policy. It explores the dynamics of the youth challenges between the sociology field, and the development of psychology which drives the influence between them, which leads to the policy assumptions of the youth and their power hierarchy that flows within their sociology. The research question of the study was, if the relationship that exists in the power of youth influences the relevant sociology of youth policy (Wyn, 2011). This helped in the analysis on the concept of the youth assumption to their lives in the domain of policy which reinforces their status quo.
It helped in engagement of the youth policy to the emergence of the understanding of their hierarchy and the relation of power to the study. The study was intended to enable the understanding of the youth sociology and its policy, as it seemed that less interest and attention was considered, which can be significant to the both fields in relating to the families and the youths’ relationships. The study enquired about the invisibility of families to the youth lives, which was a contributing factor to the hierarchy of the youth policy and the sociology fields. It helped in identification of the separation between the families and the effects of domination of youth policy, leading to the psychological ideas, development, and the normative assumptions of the family role in the lives of the youth (Wyn, 2011).
The question helped in the identification of the social changes, which have an impact to the experiences of the youth and the meaning of relationships within and outside the family structure. It also helped in the identification of challenges that exist in the analysis of the youth sociology in contribution to the youth policy, as the field is seen to be saturated with psychological assumptions about the youth. This aided the study in challenging the assumptions which ignore the social processes of an individual to the risk of their interrelationship with the ineffective solution to the problems.
This article is an analysis of research which had been conducted in relation to the sociological field of the youth and the relationships that exist between them and their families. It has gathered data from the previous studies in trying to analyze the sociology and policy of the youths, and the separation between the youth and family sociology. They have analyzed the texts of the youth from family in the domination of youth in the development of the social space, which are oriented by space. The necessity and threats potential to in the youth sociology dominate the framework of development, which influences the naturalistic concept of age (Wyn, 2011).
This article tries to show the lack of sociological research that reflects the normative preoccupation of the youths in their development to adulthood, as there is an underpinning logic which is drawn from the history and traditional norms in relation to the life of youths. The article revolves to the transition of the youth and the reliance of help from the family, of which most of the earlier researches were not involved in the transition of the lives of the youth. It have gathered the data from the previous studies of the youth policy in the 20th century and the recent research in the 21st century in examining of the trends of the sociological field of the youth and their policy, in relation to their family dependency.
The target of the research was the youth sociological study and the policy to which they were dominant in influencing the independence from their families. It targets the different age groups at the two periods of the 20th and 21st centuries, by which the youths considered themselves as being able to live independent lives without relying on their families. The article indicates that youths in the 20th century were starting their independent life when they attained the age of 18 years, and were actively involved in occupation which enhanced their independence from the family. This was due to the educational background, as it was not a compulsory thing, and thus it was possible for them to start their independence. The increase in the compulsory needs of education in the 21st century has seen the transformation in the tread, as the youths find it difficult to pursue their education, while being independent, and thus, there is need for the reliance on the family support (Wyn, 2011).
Studies have established that the youths are attaining education up to the age of 34 years, while they rely on the family support, which has an impact in influencing their lives positively in the future. The compulsory needs of education have witnessed the dynamics of occupation with many women being involved in this field, as youths are in dare need of the family support and as they have not indulged in any occupation for their independence.
The researches have found that the transformation of the youth have changed significantly over the years. This is due to the fact that most of the youth has the need to pursue education to the tertiary level, as they anticipate a better life in future. The rule of making education be compulsory to the tertiary level has seen most of the youth unable to be independent, due to the needs of education, and hence they have to rely on family support for their upkeep.
This has witnessed how transformation of youths to independent adults has changed, and thus, the changes in the youth policy and the sociological field of youth. The finding indicates that there has been significant connection that existed between the youths and their families in the recent days. This is in contrast to the youth connection that existed in the 20th century and the support from the families. The family relationship has been identified as the main factor which influences the lives of the youths. They are seen to influence the decisions of the youth concerning education and life. This support involved the material and emotional support in addition to the financial support. The youths have been found to rely on their family for the support, while they put it to the highest value relationship. This drew the relative importance of the youths to managing their lives, both in education and employment, which enhances in making decisions on their lives, and the ability to maintain the individual sense of purpose (Wyn, 2011). The analysis was able to deduce the disadvantage that was faced by those who were not able to access the family support during the youthful stage.
The article has brought forth the concept of socialization and the social interaction. It has shown that the way people are is not heredity, but a concept of how the nature and nurturing affect the way of actions. It has shown that, in order for a person to act like human, there is a need for interaction, so as to survive and stay healthy. The concept of social interaction brings out the struggle by which meanings are transferred across individuals, so as to understand what an individual is saying (Sills, 2010).
Thus, the concept of socialization of the process, by which individual experiences many different results, enables in the differentiation of ideas which are good, bad or righteous. The article has unveiled that socialization and social interaction played a major role in developing the nature of the youths in their future lives. Youths who did not have social interaction with their family members found themselves establishing their independent lives, while still young in accordance with their policy of youth. Those youth who did not have family interaction, had to find it difficult in their life, as it is not possible for them to make rightful decisions concerning their life, and they would sometimes lack the sense of the purpose (Wyn, 2011).
Socialization has been depicted as a factor that helps most of the youth in the contemporary times, as the youths have realized the needs of the family support through interactions. Socialization, as deduced from the article, has enabled the youth to make decisions which are able to manage their lives effectively. The concept of socialization has also enhanced the youths to nurture their abilities in decisions, as they are able to navigate their lives through education and later in work.
The structure of the family has been depicted as the contributing factor to the policy of the youth. The sociology of the youth and their policy of being independent can be significantly influenced by the family. The pillar of nurturing an individual coupled with nature to a relative person is capable of making decisions on their life, and the maintenance of purpose sense is dependent on the family structure. This is where the concept of interaction and the family members is borne, which enhances the future lives of individuals (Wyn, 2011).
The contemporary youth policy is dependent on the family, as it helps the youth in pursuing their life objectives successfully. Those family structures that are economically poor have been depicted to have the young ones unable to pursue the tertiary education, and are the most vulnerable people working fulltime, unlike those from the wealthier class who are able to work part-time, while they pursue their education. The family support is the factor that contributes to the completion of the tertiary education.
