Humans, like other mammals, are helpless at birth. The newborn infant is highly dependent upon others for mere physical survival. If left alone, the infant would soon die of thirst, hunger, heat, or cold. To put it simply, the human infant lacks those instincts, or unlearned forms of behavior, that in other species serve to exist. Unlike newly hatched fish or ducks, which are capable of providing for their own needs in their new environments, the human infant is highly dependent upon others for satisfaction of basic human needs. Human young, born with an incomplete nervous system and having a long maturation period, will not survive unless adults feed them, protect them from the environment, and provide constant care. Socialization is a very important process that will mostly define a child’s acceptance and good relationship with things within the environment. Good socialization skills are developed when humans are exposed to as many things as possible. The more events that a child encounters and has positive reactions to, the better response he/she will have when these events are repeated throughout the course of life. It is important that you make the socialization process as entertaining and rewarding as you possibly can. This means that during this process, your infant will need to accept being handled and being touched by other humans so that she will not fear strangers (healthcare providers, or people whom they are introduced to.) This will prove beneficial when you have to take the infant to the health clinic per se. Make sure that all the experiences a child is introduced to are pleasurable experiences. That way the child will build a good association between the event and the reward.
Human contact us necessary not only for the infant’s physical well-being, but for healthy social and psychological development as well. As infants grow, their inborn…...

...Between the 12th and 19th centuries, feudal Japan had an elaborate four tier class system. Unlike European feudal society, in which the peasants (or serfs) were at the bottom, the Japanese feudal class structure placed merchants on the lowest rung. Confucian ideals emphasized the importance of productive members of society, so farmers and fishermen had higher status than shop-keepers in Japan. At the top of the heap was the samurai class. The Samurai Class: Feudal Japanese society was dominated by the samurai warrior class. Although they made up only about 10% of the population, samurai and their daimyo lords wielded enormous power. When a samurai passed, members of the lower classes were required to bow and show respect. If a farmer or artisan refused to bow, the samurai was legally entitled to chop off the recalcitrant person's head. Samurai answered only to the daimyo for whom they worked. The daimyo, in turn, answered only to the shogun. There were about 260 daimyo by the end of the feudal era. Each daimyo controlled a broad area of land, and had an army of samurai. The Farmers / Peasants: Just below the samurai on the social ladder were the farmers or peasants. According to Confucian ideals, farmers were superior to artisans and merchants because they produced the food that all the other classes depended upon. Although technically they were considered an honored class, the farmers lived under a crushing tax burden for much of the feudal era. During the reign......

Socialisation Process in Nursing

...Socialisation process in Nursing The process by which we acquire the culture of the society into which we are born- the process by which we acquire our social characteristics and learn the ways of thought and behaviour considered appropriate in our society is called socialisation. (Bilton, 1987) Socialization is a lifelong process that begins with learning the norms and roles of the family and subculture, and making self-concept. Norm – specific guideline for actions – a rule that says how people should behave in certain circumstances (Duffy, 2013) As individuals grow older and join new groups and assume new roles, they learn new norms and redefine their self-concept (Brinkerhoff et al, 2007) From the psychological and sociological perspective, the concept of socialization has been defined as a state in which an individual is accommodated within a particular cultural group (Ryynänen, 2001). According to Davis (1968), professional socialization of student nurses was introduced in the literature as early as 1958 (Tradewell, 1996). Professional socialization is a critical aspect of nursing students' development, which begins with entry into the nursing program and continues with entry into the workforce (Chitty, 2005) There is many definitions of the socialisation process in nursing however they all mainly say that it is the development of a professional identity through the acquisition of knowledge, skills, attitudes, beliefs, values, norms, and ethical standards in order......

Employee Socialisation

...Employee Socialisation Introduction Organisations are facing a major challenge when they consider the increasing difficulty of finding skilled people. The South African labour market has undergone a transformation since 1994, with an emphasis being placed on strategies that eliminate the labour inequalities of the past and improve general working conditions for all South Africans. HR executives state the single greatest challenge they have in managing the workforce is their organisation's inability to recruit and retain good employees and managers. The South African labour market is characterised by an oversupply of unskilled workers and a shortage of skilled ones. High population growth constantly exceeds the growth in employment demands. This is compounded by the consistent loss of jobs in the formal sector, as the country’s economy moves away from labour-intensive to capital-intensive operations. The following factors contribute heavily on obtaining skilled management in South Africa, ♦ Historical reasons – South Africa’s apartheid-based economy contributed to shortages of skills as a whole host of developmental activities were restricted and access to highly specialised skills were reserved for a few; ♦ Education and Training & the Labour Market - Poor articulation between the skills acquisition in institutions of higher learning and the HRD needs of the public service ♦ Globalisation – South Africa is negatively affected by skills......

Children Socialisation

...instilled in pupils. It must be helpful most if the observed behaviour is reinforced in view of the observer. Bandura et al in Haralambos ( 2004) concludes that films that end up with the actor being rewarded awards for the good deed reinforces imitative behaviour. They called this disinhibitory effect. In conclusion the writer says the school and the peer groups socialize a child mostly in a good manner though some peer groups may lose the way. Socialization of the child by mass media should always be monitored and strictly have reinforcements. REFERENCES 1. Gwirayi, P (2010) Sociology of Education. Mambo Press, Gweru 2. Giddens, A (2001).

Socialisation and Identity Making in Denmark

...Socialisation og identitetsdannelse I sociologien beskæftiger man sig ofte med begrebet socialisation. Socialisationsprocessen er den proces som gør det lille barn til samfundsborger. Det er også den proces hvor sociale normer, roller og værdier indlæres, og det er ved socialisation at sociologerne taler om opvækst. Socialisationen er det som hjælper det enkelte individ på vej til at tilegne sig de værdier og egenskaber som gør at de kan indgå i et fællesskab. Der er både det man kalder primær og sekundær socialisation. Den primære socialisering sker for det lille barn gennem påvirkningen fra forældrene og søskende. Den primære socialisation betegner overgangen fra biologisk til socialt væsen, og er egentlig meget uformel. Ting som sprog, stemmebrug, mimespil osv. indoptages uden at hverken børn eller voksne er bevidste om det. Efterhånden som barnet bliver ældre, kommer der også påvirkninger fra daginstitutioner, skolen, kammerater, medier osv. Dette kalder man for sekundær socialisation. Denne del som er den store del af socialisationen, er mere formel og fører frem til f.eks. afgangsprøver i form af eksaminer. Afhængig af om man sympatiserer med de pågældende roller, normer og værdier eller ej, kalder man det ”læring”, ”opdragelse” eller ”indoktrinering₁”. Vi har også det man kalder for dobbeltsocialisering. Ved dobbeltsocialisering har vi med den kendsgerning at gøre, at børnene bliver opdraget i to forskellige sociale sammenhænge – nemlig i familien og i......

The Peer Group Is the Most Important Agency of Socialisation.

...Socialization is a process whereby individuals are made aware of behaviours that are expected of them with regards to the norms, beliefs, attitudes, and values of the society in which they live. There are several agencies of socialisation including peers, family, workplace, mass media but is peers the most important agency of socialisation? This essay aims to evaluate this claim. A Peer group is a very important social group. This is a primary agency of socialization. They are those who share a similar social position to you in terms of age, lifestyle, status or job. These are people you are regularly with. In course of a child’s growth, he/she is motivated to be with the friends of his age. It is mainly remarked from teen ages to adulthood. The socialization that takes place with peers is different from those of the family and school. Similar tastes, likes, dislikes and ideas influence of the creation of such groups e.g. those who are into the same sports or the same type of music form into friendship groups. Young people are most influenced by their peers. They feel most comfortable to be around them as they share similarities concluding to them being open with each other. Peer groups play a very big part of socialization because the teenage period of someone’s life is when they start to change and think differently and most of these things they experience together. They discuss certain issues, problems and matters which cannot be discussed with their adults in the family......

...There are two main types of Socialisation. There is Primary socialisation e.g. Family. Primary socialisation is the first type of socialisation you will come across. With primary socialisation you know that there are often a lot more barriers to do with behaviour and language. There is also secondary socialisation e.g. Friends. Secondary socialisation is socialisation of which you gain outside of your family; you often act differently in secondary socialisation. In secondary socialisation you will often find that you feel ‘free’ and that you can have more fun and do things that you would often be unable to do. This is because you know from a very young age that there are a lot of barriers in your source of primary socialisation. A good example for this would be swearing; when you are in your primary social group this is often frowned upon, whereas when you are with your secondary social group it is often the norm. Three identified Socio-Economic Factors are: Education, Money/Income and Housing. In infancy education is very important for intellectual development. Education is important through all life stages. It is a known fact that if you have a better education, and attended a well known private school you are more likely to get a well paid job. This is because private schools are known to have smaller classes, so teachers are able to help students better. This could also mean that you have a better general knowledge as you can also learn from friends. It is also known......

Socialisations Affect on Gender

...Socialisation is similar to Social Darwinism. The application of evolutionary laws of natural selection to human societies to 'explain' social processes and behaviours. Spencer coined the term 'survival of the fittest' (often misattributed to Darwin) to describe how Darwin’s ideas about natural selection in nature can be used to explain social processes and behaviours. Socialisation as a term refers to a process that is of critical importance in development of the individual person and in the functioning of groups and societies. (Hunt, P. 3) A major theme is the socialisation process has been the of social structure and value orientations on patterns of child rearing. (P.30.)   Agencies of socialisation are where socialisation occurs within, these agencies or social networks aid in the social construction of an individual. The primary socialisation (refers to the socialisation of babies and young children, and mainly occurs within the family) is the family. The family is a child’s first reference group. Families are diverse and their style of parenting reflects cultural, class, ethnic, and religious differences. (Rogoff, P55) Other members of the family’s social network, such as neighbours, also have an influence on behaviour, attitudes and values through their provision of positive and negative representations. It includes all those who are included in the family’s primary social network, such as neighbours, grandparents, close family friends, cousins. (Hunt, P. 33.) ...

‘Explain What Is Meant by Socialisation’

...Socialisation signifies a progression of a single person in terms of the continuation of social values and norms; making the individual conscious of their status in society as well as social approval. The main factor being the behaviour of an individual and whether or not this is deemed “applicable” and “acceptable” in a general and common locale and in environments. Socialisation is made up of two divisions; both primary and secondary. Primary socialisation is referred to the socialisation of an individual in its primary years of life and ultimately materialises within the family. An individual will have learnt the technique of a fundamental category and will have been formed into an effectual individual in that social group. Secondary socialisation is referred to the socialisation of an individual throughout its life into adulthood and beyond. This is where life’s events and settings form the identity and carry on the socialisation and social demeanour from peer groups. One example of socialisation is from a 2012 article from the Daily Telegraph (Alleyne, 2012). Established from a couple and their child; Beck Laxton, Kieran Cooper and Sasha. Having had their child; the family decided they hadn’t wanted to consider their child’s gender being based on and prompted by societies biased preconceptions of gender. Therefore, the child was raised as “the infant” and its upbringing was centred on being outfitted in both female and male clothing, as well as only being permitted...

Ones manners, people skills, and the like are all a result of ones socialization. Even pets are now socialized in order to better prepare them to interact with other animals when walking in the city or the park. So why then is socialization such a strange and foreign concept to parents? To put it simply, children should being socialization at a young age to prepare them to interact with other children and adults as they grow. Socialization alone can move a child from having a dramatic experience when being left with a care giver to a more pleasant one. Not only does the child benefit from this, but the parents do as well. Often parents feel that since their child does not react well to other that they are confined to home without a night out or a play date with another family. This simply is not true. A child can and should become acquainted with other children, extended family (if possible), and eventually a care giver or baby sitter. This can soften the blow to the child and parents when the later must leave for work, a leisurely night out, or a to run errands. So, what is socialization exactly?
