Introduction Socialization is a lifelong process of social interaction and learning. Through which a child learns the intellectual, physical, and social skills needed to function as a member of society.Socialization is important mainly in the development of an individual and the development of society because it passes on culture and culture tells us a lot on who we are.Socialization also contributes to the formation of personality(i.e., the patterns of behavior and ways of thinking and feelings that are distinctive for each individual) and ultimately a sense of self .Which is a changing but enduring dimension of personality composed of an individuals self awareness and self-image that develops via socialization. George Herbert Mead defined the self as the individuals active awareness of existing as a distinct object in the midst of society.The self however takes time and social experience to develop.As it is a product of many social interactions and the identification of statuses for example culturally defined social positions that we occupy as we interact with others. Also another and perhaps most importantly, it takes experiences for young children to recognize that other people have a distinct self beyond that of teacher, pastor, mother or father, brother and sister or whatever it is that plays part in that child's life.Children as human beings learn to pattern their behavior, and adapt it to the ways of acting that are considered appropriate to that society in which they live. Basically, it's how you learn how to act.

My mother showed me how to be a confident person; she has always persuade me to always be confident about myself.And to be myself no matter what other people say at the end, its only family that matters.I really took that too heart ever since I was younger.
