Discus 3 Folkways are the way people are suppose to act in everyday normal situations. For instance I was taught  only to wear white between memorial day and labor day. I still look at people a little crazy dressed in all  white in March, even though it is socially accepted.  A mores is the way that people act that has moral  significance. I was thinking like wearing white to a funeral. People generally wear black as a sign or  mourning and out of respect. I'm not sure if this technically would fall under something morally incorrect. A  better example would be driving a car while intoxicated. It happens often and shouldn't although everyday  normal people do it. Discus 5 The differences between the pre- operational stage and concrete stage in Piaget's theory is that according to the theory by Jean Piaget, during the pre-operational stage, children who's ages are from about 2 years old to 6 years old attach meaning to only particular objects. For example, during these times, children can have thoughts as an idea but it's difficult for them to have a physical image of it's existence. Also, the concrete stage children that are at the age of seven to eleven years old pay attention to how and the reason in why things happen. For example, they are able to attach more than a single symbol to an object. Also, their judgment on abstract concepts are much better. Discus 6  Criminal behavior can be described in so many ways using the different theories that we learned. The  theory approach that i think stands out is the race conflict approach. This theory describes the differences  in race and ethnic backgrounds in our society. Based on criminal behavior this could pose a positive  outcome or a negative outcome. The overall conflict theory describes the society as a place of inequality  that generates conflict or issues. So if you narrow it down to something specific like race conflict in our  society, this is something that affects criminal behavior. Discus 7  The culture of poverty states that the poor are responsible for their own poverty. They remain in their  poverty because of their adaptations to the burden's of poverty. I believe this theory is mostly correct in  explaining the problem poverty. Of course there are some exceptions of the poor that do make it out of  poverty, but most of them remain in the culture of poverty. The people who are in the culture of poverty do

not take advantage of the opportunities offered by society because they feel helpless and powerless due  to lack of skills, schooling or even motivation. They feel that they do not have the resources necessary to  get out of poverty so they sort of get used to living in poverty and give up on trying to elevate their  economic social class.
