  • Primary socialisation (or primary socialization) in sociology is the acceptance and learning of a set of norms and values established through the process of socialization. Typically this is initiated by the family. Primary socialization occurs during childhood and is when a child learns the attitudes, values and actions appropriate to individuals as members of a particular culture. For example, if a child saw his/her mother expressing a discriminatory opinion about a minority group, then that child may think this behavior is acceptable and could continue to have this opinion about minority groups. Also, it is characterized by an emotional identification to an important human being during this process. Those people are significant to transfer values linked with the society. The idea of primary socialization was proposed by Talcott Parsons as one of the "basic and irreducible" functions performed by the family, the other being the stabilization of adult personalities. Parsons saw this process as maintaining society's value consensus. (en)
