Extended families and nuclear families have their own patterns of socialization
Birth order has a pattern ± first born mother had 6 kids right after ± sibling grow up
quickly when they are packed together ± places burden on older children to grow up
quickly
Boys who have just brothers ± tend to be more macho ± the guys are more patriarchal
