Social Roles and Expectations

Many of psychologists have a strong belief in what we take on and act out certain roles according to the social influences or expectation placed on us by our culture and society. It stimulates me to think more about why people have tendency or attitude in their act. My personal belief in social roles is that one's social norm can be mostly learned and defined by their parents not by social influences. The origin of conceiving concept of social norms are started from the parents who educate one's behavior. We often can see some kids in restaurant running around and causes some trouble. There are some parents who scold at their kids while others gives more courage to their kids that they justify themselves with wrong behavior.
