Culture, Peer Interaction and Socioemotional Development
Peer observation and interaction are the most direct ways that children influence their acculturation. Peer contact provides children with the social skills that are necessary for their growth. Suppose kids are not acclimated to these encounters. In that case, they will not be able to gain the essential abilities to overcome the obstacles they will confront and comprehend the laws that will apply to them. Interactions with peers help students grasp which habits are appropriate and which are not and why and how to follow the norms. Following or joining a “click” or “group” even if they realize the community’s behavior is improper and may negatively, influence them is a sign of a youngster directly affecting their acculturation.
The community is an indirect approach for a youngster to affect their acculturation. Children are born into a society that has already established values. These principles, which are a part of their culture, define what is and is not proper; youngsters connect with their peers. They engage in peer relationships once they reach this stage, and they may face an emotional battle. They are torn between the urge to uphold their deeply ingrained tribal ideas and the need to be recognized by their peers. The fact that youngsters do not wish to move away from their taught cultural values explains how they indirectly affect their acculturation. They are then rejected by a particular social group and regarded as odd due to their decision.
We must participate in our development. It is necessary to be aware of desires, our wants, situations, surroundings, and ourselves. This is a significant shift since we will be genuinely aware of, consider, and support others if we are not mindful of ourselves. Being genuinely connected in all ways will and can improve our culture significantly. To achieve additional improvements, and lasting changes, we must first examine ourselves, make the necessary modifications, and then disseminate the beneficial traits throughout the universe through interactions with others. Participating in our production, I have discovered, extends to all thematic themes.
