The socializing institutes of family, school, peers, and the mass media, shape us throughout our lives. We often take for granted that others share in our experience with these institutes, in fact many people only socialize with others who have quite similar experiences as do they.

In order to understand the various forms of socializing institutes please discuss socialization with someone who is not from the same social background as you. In your discussion please note if and how the four institutes differ from your own social life.


Zhenchao is a colleague from China. I know him through my graduate program at Ohio State University where he was a member of my Graduate Committee.


(Important information could include: political structure of nation; family size; parental occupations; gender roles)

Zhenchao’s family was born in China under communist rule but he and his wife and child moved to the US in the 1990s. His parents are academics – his father is an economist and his mother is a bio-chemist. In China, women had more occupational equality than they did in the U.S. during the1950s. However, due to the one child policy to reduce China’s population he was, as an adult, only allowed to have one child. After moving to the U.S. he and his wife decided to have another child. In China he did not know anyone who was not Chinese.

My family is from Europe and my Mom stayed at home while my father worked as a machinist for Edison. They decided to only have 2 children. We moved from Canada, a Socialist nation with free medical and social services and different race relations to America, a capitalist nation where individuals must buy their own health care and where race relations have often been hostile. When I moved to America I had to learn that whites and people of color had a different social space which was not the case in Canada.


(Important information could include: costs of education; the age range of attendance; if the respondent attended higher education how was it funded; are boys and girls educated the same; what is considered important content in schools)

He was educated in a communist school – where all children attend school and all children have equal likelihood to attend college. Unlike many nations where education is linked with wealth, socialist and communist nations provide free schooling. His school stressed math and Chinese philosophy. Boys and girls attended school together but all kids wore the same state sponsored uniform.

I attended public school where many of my classmates dropped out by high school. I had to pay for college and took out loans even though I worked two jobs – I had to pay for books, tuition, transportation to and from school and basic life necessities. My schools focused on Language, Science and Math but also other content such as electives in music and art. Boys and girls were educated next to each other and we did not wear uniforms.


(Important information could include: was the respondent allowed to choose their own friends; who did they choose and why )

His peer group is comprised mostly of professors of sociology with children. His peer group helps shape his weekend activities. This group plans Saturday activities such as day trips to museums with their children. Often, the group takes turns caring for the children allowing the others some personal time to rekindle personal relationships and work.

My peers come from a variety of social places – some from school, some from playing music, some from my neighborhood. I choose to be my friends people who are positive and generally do not have children. The majority of my peers either have a college degree are working on one or plan to go back to school to earn a degree.


(Important information could include: who controls the media; where do they get information; what sort of show/programs do they enjoy?)

The majority of his time with the media is spent reading scientific journals and his family watches little television. He has many after school activities planned for his children therefore they do not spend time watching television. While in China, the state controls the media outlets and there fore he did not learn to follow the media. He does enjoy traditional Chinese music and currently listens to this on the Internet radio.

I grew up with a television, radio and records in my house. I occasionally enjoy TV but still listen to my old LPs. I do not care for commercial news but rather get my information from independent news sources such as Democracy Now! on the Internet or on PBS. In the US the media is owned by private corporations that are highly concentrated.
