And become aware of themselves as they interact with others  Socialization is important for babies especially because they depend of older and experienced to learn from  There are many Theories of Childhood Socialization:  The self consists of your ideas and attitudes about which you are (self-development). Freud believes that children self-image when their demands are denied by parents ex. Not feeding kids in the middle of the night will make the kids learn to eat more before going to sleep  Cooley – our feelings about who we are depend largely on how we see ourselves evaluated by others ex. Student gets a poor grade leads to affect their self-concept  Mead – believes there is a I which is the personal aspect of the self that is present from birth, then there is the Me that is the general component of the self that emerges as people communicate and learn to take on roles of others  Mead came up with 4 stages of development for kids:  Children learn to use language and other symbols by imitating from significant others like mom and dad  Children learn to be like other people.
