Culture is a way of living and it’s how most people survive in life. Not only does our culture reinforce everyone’s belief about behavior, but it also reinforces our assumptions about what is considered acceptable and unacceptable behavior. Culture also brings out moral and social codes when it comes to society, which currently exists in the rules and laws we abide by.
Culture helps the way people act, speak, do their business and even how they view their life. There are different reasons why reinforcing your culture is important when it comes to the behavior of your family.
Many people might not realize this but your culture plays a huge part in the behavior and psychological pattern in a person. Culture is a way to define who we are and why people behave the way they do.
Our Culture defines the main characteristics to important events or even ideas in our lives. For instance, when a culture enforces greed, those in the corporate world will do any “get rich quick” scheme or do whatever is necessary to climb the corporate ladder. Greed is even reinforced by various images of wealth and various messages about what each person could gain from having a huge piece of the pie.
There are so many subcultures within a culture. For example there’s Hispanic-American and African-American. When it comes to reinforcing culture within each of the groups, they’re being taught your literature, music, photos and family structure. For example, for the Hispanic-American subculture, they’ll use images of Latin dancing moving to the sound of salsa or show that in a film.
It’s important to always try to reinforce your culture to your family. Culture plays a huge part in on how people become the way that they are. How your raise your children by reinforcing culture can make a huge impact for how they turn out later down the road.
