Agents of Socialization
Watch the video for a review of the various agents of socialization. We go through socialization and resocialization during many different stages in our lives - as we are growing up, when we get married, when we have children, when a loved one dies, when we retire, etc. During each of these stages, we rely on others at times to orient us to the stage, to guide us, and to give us advice on the way to respond, adjust, and behave. Can you think of a distinct example of socialization or resocialization in your own life? Which agent(s) of socialization were key to understanding social norms at this particular stage in life?
