My Agents Of Socialization: Family, School, And Friends

In my opinion, my family has the greatest influence on my identity and my behavior. The family is a kid’s first universe. It is the world that a kid lives in, learns about, and develops his personality. It is a world in itself, where the child learns how to live, move and have his being. Socialization is a vital function of the family. Here, the child develops a sense of self-preparation and a propensity to prepare — eating and resting.

The primary family is the most important place where the child learns, no matter if it’s a crude society or a modern, complex one. The first relationships that a child has with other people are those closest to him, such as his mother or caretaker, parents, relatives, or close friends. I found love, security, cooperation, authority and course. School has been my biggest influence after family. The schools take over socialization after the family.

Schooling does not only focus on reading and writing but also teaches us how we can create for ourselves, develop our own skills, learn to work together with others, follow rules, and challenge ourselves. In schools, we are taught about our future occupations or work. In the past, schools had a duty to give information about controls that were most important to adults in general. Some people believe that home learning is more personal and enthusiastic, while school-learning is more fundamentally educated. I am most socialized by my friends. They are more important than family or school. Friends groups are becoming increasingly important. The socialization of friend groups has grown in recent years. Teenagers invest a great deal of energy in socializing with their friends outside of the family and home.

Teenagers who are in the car with their parents, whether they live in the city or country, get to be friends. Study shows that teenagers create their unique subcultures — college cultures, car cultures, bike religions or athletic gatherings. Friendship gatherings are important because they help us to develop adult responsibilities. Other times, these gatherings might encourage us not to respect the ways of life by driving in a careless manner, shoplifting and participating in vandalism. Several studies on misbehavior show that companion gatherings have a greater impact than family in developing standards. My family and friends have a strong influence on me today. My schooling has helped me develop my own social identity, but my family and close friends have actually defined who am I.
