Socialization

Please share an anecdote about a time, a situation, or an instance where you underwent the socialization process. For example, if I were posting, I might discuss my experience in the police academy. Some of you might have stories of assimilation into American culture if you moved here from another country. Others of you might have vivid memories of gender role socialization experiences growing up. You should each start your own thread, and your post should be 100 words or more.
