Family and religion social institutionsFamily and religion social institutionsSocial institutions are structures that are set up as part of society’s social order to be able to govern behavior and expectations of individuals in a society. Family and religion are one of the major social institutions that have high influential capacity in socialization, but their form and function vary from one society to the other. Familyis probably the most influential since it is the place where children grow up learning values, norms and expectations of their culture. It consists of people related through marriage, blood or adoption. But the most common form known in American society is nuclear family, where couples and their children live together. According to functionalist theory Family is where the first socialization occurs, and a child’s behavior is shaped. Family also services in providing intimate relationship where one feels will always belong in, loved and be cared for. In a family, members also learn social status and hierarchical structure through respecting parents, elder sisters and brothers or communicating with respect.
