Initial Post Instructions
Political socialization  begins young. Think about conversations around politics when you were  in primary school (around age 10). Maybe there was a natural disaster in  your area such as a hurricane and government response levels were  critiqued. What were some of the ways you learned about the political  establishment through family members and friends? How were you  politically socialized as a child? Use evidence (cite sources) to  support your response from assigned readings or online lessons, and at least one outside scholarly source.
