What is socialization?
Primary Socialization Example #1
Primary Socialization Example #2
Socialization is a life-long learning process that teaches human beings how to be capable members of society. Primary socialization usually happens in the home, with parents and family members being agents of socialization. They teach children values, attitudes, and help them make sense of their world.
Scout and Jem's mother passed away when Scout was just two, so Calpurnia (their maid) acts as a surrogate mother. She gives the children boundaries, teaches them manners and proper behaviour, and attends to their basic needs.
Secondary Socialization Example #1
Atticus has a unique relationship with Jem and Scout. As per his request, they call him by his first name, which is normal for them because they've grown up with it. Atticus is also highly educated and spends a lot of his time reading. He often reads with Jem and Scout, making it no surprise that Scout already knows how to read when she starts school.
Secondary Socialization Example #2
Secondary socialization occurs outside of the home. It is when children are exposed to ideas and values that are different from their own, as well as when they learn specific roles.
Calpurnia takes Jem and Scout to her African-American church and exposes the children to a different denomination. Jem and Scout normally attend the Methodist Church, so they are not used to the lack of hymn books and the reverend calling out those who have sinned.
Scout struggles to adjust to the first grade as she's never attended school before. She must learn the scheduling, not to talk out of turn, or act like a know-it-all, especially when it comes to reading.
