A flow diagram showing the three stages of socialisation. Starting at the left, the first box states: ‘Primary socialisation – involves the socialisation of the young child in the family’. A right-pointing arrow then moves to the second box, which states ‘Secondary socialisation – occurs during childhood and youth and takes place at school and between friends’. Another right-pointing arrow finally goes to the third box, which states ‘Adult socialisation – occurs when people adopt roles in the workplace or become parents themselves’.
