A family is defined as a group of people consisting of parents and children living together in a household. (Dictionary) Family is always seen as the basic socialization agent whether the family lives with each other or far apart. Family is the most important agent of socialization because it is the basis for procreation and socialization of children. (Kendall, 2017) Family is where we acquire our attitudes, beliefs, norms, values, and morals. Family is also our biggest source of emotional support. Family is where we receive acceptance, love, understanding, security, and companionship. (Kendall, 2017) Family is especially important for young children because family is where these young children will learn how they are supposed to be treated and what they will accept as they get older and enter the real world. A large part of family is where we acquire our specific social position in society. (Kendall, 2017) When we are born, we are classified into a specific grouping of our family, whether it be racial, religious, ethnic, or class. (Kendall, 2017) While family is the most important agent of socialization and it teaches norms, attitudes, values, and beliefs, it can also hurt a child because some parents teach their children about the importance of wealth, power, and privilege. (Kendall, 2017) Teaching a child the importance of these things can make them feel like they always must have things handed to them and they never have to work for anything. These parents that teach their children privilege, wealth and power are more than likely the same parents who teach their children that they are better than all races or religions or whatever it may be. For the parents that teach their kids to make their own way in life, I applaud them. I think all children need to struggle at some point and be able to figure things out on their own. They need to learn how to work for the things they want in life. Almost everybody is "spoiled" at some point in their life, but there comes a point where it can be too much. This goes back to family being the most important agent of socialization. Family is your biggest source...
