Family has to be the biggest influence in our background. They are there throughout our earliest years and the first to socialize with us 3. Discuss one way that your family helped to socialize you to your culture’s norms or values. Who was involved? What did you learn? My dad was very strict in his rules and guidelines so I grew up learning his norms and values, and the family rules. 4. Cooley argues that our self develops through interactions and our impressions about how other people see us. Do you think that he is correct? Why or why not? Many people, especially girls, think more of what others think, so I agree with Cooley. A confident person is formed when someone begins with an image of themselves that is nurtured by the feedback of others. 5. Sociologists argue that we internalize some norms so that we feel guilty or “icky” if we break those norms. What is an example from your own life of a norm that you’ve internalized? Why do you think you’ve internalized this norm? (Think about rules or behaviors that you’d feel guilty breaking or things that you can’t imagine doing because they would be really bad or gross to help you find an example) Bullying a person is a good example of internalization. Not bullying people is a norm that when people break can sometimes make them feel guilty. It hurts people who then take it to heart and internalize it.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
