Culture is the glue that holds a society togetherit is what encourages the members of that society to cooperate with each other as much as possible. We learn culture through socialization, the lifelong social experience. From birth we are taught how to be members of our society. The most common agents of socialization are our family, peers, school, and media. The family, for example, influences a childs development by such things as the way the parents hold the baby, look at it, talk to it, and respond to its needs. We take on typical gender roles from the beginning as girls are given pink clothes while boys are given blue. Family socialization is reinforced or modified by experiences at school and with peers, by the mass media, and by interaction with others. Socialization, the lifelong social experience through which we learn culture, is vital to becoming members of a society. In this assessment, we look at the sociological concepts of culture and socialization and how they impact our behavior and attitudes.
