⇒ The act of adapting behavior to the norms of a culture or society is called socialization.

⇒ Socialization takes place anytime you are interacting with others. We learn how to act and treat others by observing and imitating those around us. In a home environment, parents are the one teaching their children how to conduct themselves. 

⇒ As a child interacts with the community through activities, field trips, errands, church, etc., he or she learns patterns of behavior for fitting into society.
