Wasn't it nice of Simon to do your homework assignment for you?
Of course, if you plan to get through school via Yahoo Answers, you won't really have learned a thing, will you?
Too bad that Simon didn't study enough to know about Kingsley Davis' classic study of extreme isolation or Harry Stack Sullivan's analysis of George Herbert Mead's theory, especially the section that Sullivan referred to as "significant others."
I think that if you refer to the chapter on "Socialization" in your textbook and/or your lecture notes, you'll easily find all of the answers that you need.
1.Socialization is a term to describe your norms & values, personal views, etc, how you're brought up by your parents, how you act in society, etc.
. 2.The role of socialization plays a big part in human development because without it people wouldn't know how to function in society, primary socialization is very important because it teaches children the skills that they need in life e.g their norms and values, how to get on with people. Without it we wouldn't be "normal".
3. It can lead to extreme anti social behaviour, speech problems, maybe mental health problems?
4. the roles of the family are important because it provides emotional support, economic support, educational support. The roles of school teaches children social control e.g making sure they turn up every day on time, having the correct uniform, (Hidden Curriculum), Qualifications to get a job/further education, knowledge. Peer group's are also important because they influence each other, for example what clothes to wear, what music they should listen to. And they can also stop children from getting on at school - distracting each other from work. Mass Media - It influences young people because they are exposed to e.g violence, celebrities etc.
not sure about 5 sorry.
6. Personal status - If you have a image in your peer group for example and losing it and they stop being friends because you're differnent and finding it hard to get some more friends.
not sure about 7 either sorry.
(Hope it helps.)
