Abstract: This is a study about how and why I believe family is the most important agent of socialization. I will also explain what caused the dramatic changes to the American Family. I will also explain differences in race, class, and gender has in the importance of family.
Introduction of How Important of Family:
I The importance of parental socialization and family status variables (Socioeconomic, Educational, and Professional). The term self – oriented (occupation and profession), and Community – oriented (Service, Church, Community, Fraternal, and Neighborhood) types of participation is explained by (Janaki, Thomas; Wilson, John; Sep. 1995. P. 271 – 292).Socialization occurs through interaction with agents during the individual’s personal lifetime which consider with the family, peer groups, school, and the mass media among others. The family is the primary agent in Socialization of children’s life’s, especially the first five yrs. The family provides the children with his / her first social contact with the Social World, through correct patterns of behavior learned by the child (Seybold, 1986).“The family is the most important because it represents the control of children’s lives” (Mucinous and Plummer, 1998). The socialization process begins with the family, and more so those individuals to which the child will rely for survival. This is the process were the child is fashioned into a human, from birth (Milionis and Plummer, 1998). The children learn to speak, the language, actions, mode of communication, value systems, norms, and the meaning of things through adoption, repetition, and observation of the social actions of people within the Environment (Paul Bourne, 2006).
Class of the Family:
The class of families all deals with the family structure in the Environment.The family structure in the US is known as the family support system that provides care and stability. The influential changes include divorce and the introduction of single – parent families, teenage pregnancy, unwed mothers, and same sex marriages (Argonne S. Fraser,1989. P. 13). The changes in the American Family considers with striking at the heart of our nations on life and the ways it functions (Argonne S. Fresher, 1989, p. 13), those things include longer life spans, the advent of safe and effective birth control, women’s increasing participation in the paid labor force, and dramatic increase in divorce rates in reshaping family life.
Gender in Family:
Families are a set of primary relationships – biological, emotional, social, economic, and legal relationships is expressed by (Argonne S. Fraser, 1989). Families provide mutual economic, physical, and emotional support, meeting the need for food, shelter, and intimacy “.The changes are caused by Increase Diverse Rates, less stigma in family choices, women having more freedom.
Ethnicity in Families:
This is the use of tribe and race are important concepts in Sociology. The question is Racism, which an ideology of innate superiority that brought about discrimination, exclusion and marginalizing of particular categories of individuals (Fenton, 1996. P. 141).The demise of “race” as an analytic term means it’s disappearance from popular and political discourses and in the USA which retains a Central position in Academic Discourse (Fenton, 1996. P. 141)
To wrap things up the concern in Diversity, is resulting in strengthening “Sense of Culture”, which is another ‘sphere ‘in Society, Economy, and Polity through the material relations acquired (Clarke, 2002; Rosenwein, 1995). Marriage is proven to provide Physical, and Mental Health (Gove et al, 1983; Jong et al, 1997; Simon, 2002; Umber son & Williams, 1999).The context in marriage is associated with health because it provides access resources that promotes better health (Goode, 1960; Simon, 1995; Theist, 1982).
