As we grow up we need to make a choice about where we belong as Steve Jobs stated ‘we were the group of people who were going to judge whether it was great or not’. All individuals at times in life can find themselves in association with different groups, whether the group has common interests, the same spoken language, the same ethnicity or the same shared values. The groups which we belong to play a major part in shaping who we are and how we identify ourselves, although sometimes our own identity may need to be compromised in order for us to belong in a group.

Family a Socialization Agent Families are considered the most important aspect of a person’s socialization development. Centuries before the family unit was known as families they were called kinships which “referred to a social network of people based on common ancestry, marriage, or adoption (Kendall, 2013, p. 435).
