    Because they socialise you. I'm not going to go through all of them but for example. The media shows you what age appropriate behaviour is both consciously and unconsciously. School reinforces this by giving different roles to pupils dependent on age, the religious organisations have age specific rites of passage.

    Yoyo come to learn what class you are tbroyfh primary socialization u rake on your parents taste manners etc these are often defined by class. The status given to old people is also a product of socialization.

    It is through socialization/sociAl interaction that I develop ure identity.

    In postmodern ity the idea of fixed identity is losing its significance. There is supposedly a blurring of the lines between age class ethnicity gender etc. Identities are not fixed they are fluid.

    Now go read the textbook if u want to pass....
