Role of Society

I do remember how I taught the Senior High School children in sociology class about understanding and respecting the difference of values and norms in people and within their culture. Afterwards to make them understand. I compared my hometown to this beautiful island and told them how much of a culture shock the many new things were. This article explains the different impacts society has on people according to what I saw and heard. It is a short story of how society affects children’s lifes in these villages compared to mine. Society here means the big family, both adults and teenagers of the place you live, and people at school.

I was raised in a family with individuality as a foundation. I lived in an area where society played a small role in my life. In my residential environment, we rarely talk with each other and we live thinking nobody would be there for you if you had a problem. How we see ourselves is more important than what other people see in us. At school, the lack of a sports education combined with my extremely introverted personality made me a person with poor social skills. I failed to understand the importance of social life and how society could help me develop.
