The most influential agent of socialization I the family. In this chapter this is shown, generally the kids in “street” families had the tendency to act similar to their parents. “The kind of home he comes from influences but does not determine the way he will ultimately turnout,” (105). The kids would be quick to hit someone else if they did not get their way, they would yell and argue in very unorderly fashions, just like they had seen their parents do or other adults they had been surrounded by. Aside from family peers are also a strong agent of socialization, especially in a system like this in which children are raised through accomplishment of natural growth, in which they are surrounded by other children in all their free time and often times children not in their age group.
In this article, the author explains why sports are very dangerous but also very beneficial. He starts off with his own personal stories and gets into describing how American football is seen as remarkably dangerous, and he includes evidence such as the violence the sport brings.

One way that parents effect gender socialization of children is of what they are buying for them. Boys and girls are bought clothes differently in order to fir their appropriate respective sexes and roles. For example, the shirts parents select for their children are often unconsciously intended to socialize them into the appropriate gender roles. Girls often receive a pink or similar color type of T-shirt or dress. Boys on the other hand are given a blue or yet again a similar type of color.
Social development is the way in which a child or young person learns to fit in to the world that they live in. Developing emotional resiliance, self reliance, principles, morals and learning to maintain friendships and relationships with others. In the first six months of life, babies will communicate through crying to express their needs, such as hunger, tiredness, warmth or emotional comfort. They will smile and form a close bond with their main caregivers.
Athletes take the risk of getting injured not just for a couple of months but for the rest of their lives’, some athlete will not be able to afford the medication that they need in the future to cope with their injuries. Athletes are also held at a higher standard in the publics eye, they are being watch every second of every day whether it be by the general public or by the media.

Coaches tend to live beneath a false sense of security that their only responsibility is to further the athletic capabilities if their players both individually, and collectively. This thought that coaches have no obligation to defend their athletes’ mental, and physical safety is absurd. Coaches are not simply caretakers of players, but of people, and therefore hold a moral and legal duty to create a safe environment of play, in order to prevent, and protect their athletes from serious head trauma, or other sports related injuries. Many believe that it is solely medical professionals’ jobs to keep athletes safe, while the majority of sports-world believes that this responsibility is shared among multiple different influences in
Socialization is the process where individuals acquire the language, social skills, and values to conform to the norms of a specific society or culture. Socialization is shown many times throughout GI Jane. Some examples are: Lt. O’Neil’s boyfriend, who is also a military member, does not support her and feel that she should attempt the impossible as she is a woman. He would represent both a family or peer agent in this movie. When she arrives the Commanding Officer greets her and attempts to steady or pull the chair out for her as that is a common gesture to do for women.
“In the U.S., about 30 million children and teens participate in some form of organized sports, and more than 3.5 million injuries each year” claims Stanford Children’s Health. It’s definitely true that competitive sports can cause all sorts of injuries from big to small. The media teaches people simply that sports leads to horrific injuries and can cause stress, but what the mainstream media hardly discusses are the great benefits of competitive sports. While there may be some negatives to competitive sports, that’s just life, and to add on to that; there are plenty of benefits which are sure to override to media’s facts. Kids should play competitive sports because competitive sports teach children powerful life lessons, contributes to their social and mental stability, and because of the physical gain competitive sports provides.
It may also an event that changes over the course of time. On the other hand, social development is to put people at the center of development. It is the interaction of children with other people in the community or society. It may also be the ability to form and sustain a relationship with others. However, children’s identity is still developing; they are unable to determine who they really were (Anderson & Gentile, 2007).
Steele’s study further supports the psychological aspect of the human instinct to conform to society, even if one is unaware of it. The athlete’s performance is ultimately triggered by messages sent to the brain that then impact one’s performance, thus, supporting the notion that humans live up to their stereotypes mainly due to psychological stereotypes. Because of the social environment in the United States, it is fair to conclude that one’s behavior is a reflection of the society he or she is surrounded with, thus, conforming to and fueling the effects of

How do we become who we are today? Are we born this way, or are we slowly transformed by the world around us? This controversy is most often recognized as the nature verses nurture conflict. Some people believe that it is strictly genes that affects our ways of life, others believe that it is the environment that affects us. Though genetics makes us who we are genetically, the environment in which we are raised directly shapes our life.
Thesis: Human development has been regarded as one of the most highly controversial topics in the world. This debate is labeled nature versus nurture. The controversy centers on the premise that our personality, behavior, intelligence, and feelings are either genetically inherited, or environmentally earned; that we are innate creatures born with our personalities, or that they are learned by experiences and time. We are born with our personalities, but our behaviors are learned through experience and shaped thru time. Barbara Latten: "I think that inherently we are who we are.
