UWG People Around Us Determine the Kind of People We Become Later in Life Response
Reply to peer on module overview…
Taking into account what we have learned about culture, personality, and emotion over the past few lessons, what role do you think that childhood socialization (both parenting and interactions with peers/friendships) plays in the formation of who we become as people?
I believe parents play the largest part in our formation as people because we spend a large majority of our developmental stages within their presence. From early childhood we learn primarily through mimicking the actions we see them perform and what they allow us to do through positive and negative reinforcers. We are further shaped by interactions with our peers by social interaction through conversations, gestures, and the games we like to play. We finally see something different from what we see at home.
