Children’s toys tend to be specifically marketed toward kids of one gender, either boys or girls. “Boy” toys tend to be associated with action, such as building, fighting, or playing sports, while “girl” toys tend to be more associated with domestic work, such as playing house, cooking food, or taking care of a baby. The gender division of these toys serves as one example of how children are socialized to understand gender roles. Read the New York Times article Guys and Dolls No More? to better understand the role that kids’ toys play in the division of gender roles.
The above is a just one example of agents of socialization, which are structured situations, such as families, schools, the media, and peer groups, where socialization takes place. In other words, they are agents that teach us how to behave and help us internalize values, beliefs, and norms.
For this discussion, select one agent of socialization and describe a specific norm that one might learn from that source. Be sure to describe the process of how the norm you chose is learned and internalized. Then, discuss how the norm might influence a particular social role.
Discussion responses should be on topic, original, and contribute to the quality of the Discussion by making frequent informed references to lesson material. Initial Discussion responses should be a minimum of 200 words.

Patty was recently in a serious car accident. She broke her arm and suffered significant bruising. She was relieved that she didn’t have serious internal bleeding or injuries. She and her family were also happy to hear that it is unlikely to have any long-term physical or mental disability, since she is only 33 years old. With her broken arm, it is difficult for her to prepare food and she is surprised that in the 2 weeks since the accident, her clothes are feeling quite loose. She hasn’t been very active while she’s been recovering and assumed weight loss would not occur.
