In “Ecology of Youth Collective Socialization”, Nicotera, Williams, and Anthony argue that multiple social ecology influences of peers, school, as well as neighborhoods are extensively related to youth’s well-being, as well as misconducts. Within the article written, the intended audience consists of scholars, professionals, parents, as well as current and future researchers. The three authors submitted multiple hypotheses regarding the influences of peers, school, as well as neighborhoods on today’s youth while omitting familial influences.
As presented above, the author’s main objective for writing this particular article is to present as well as analyze the collective socialization of today’s youth through peer, school, and neighborhood influences resulting in both positive as well as negative results regarding their well-being and misconducts. Their main arguments consist of their presentation as well as analysis of the influences of both positive and negative outcomes. The author’s base their analysis on each of these influences through administered investigations, current studies, questionnaires, as well as previous research from scholars to support the multiple hypotheses.
The purpose of this particular article consists of the examination of the influences of perceived neighborhoods, distal peers, and proximal peers regarding the problematic behavior as well as well-being of today’s youth. Also within this particular article their purpose consisted of how these particular relationships result in potential mediation through the susceptibility of today’s youth in regards to peer pressure. This will then allow for further intervention, new strategies, and expansion of these findings among future studies as well as validation for the lives of today’s youth.
Nicotera, Williams, and Anthony argue that multiple factors in which influence today’s youth result in both positive as well as negative outcomes. The initial hypotheses presented consisted of all three aspects of perceived collective socialization would affect the well-being as well as the behavioral outcome for today’s youth. This hypothesis is based off of the model of human development. The second hypothesis presented consisted of the influence of collective socialization works through the actual youth’s individual susceptibility to peer pressure.
The third hypothesis presented consisted of the susceptibility of peer pressure would result in a negative effect the today’s youth’s well-being as well as increase the problematic behavior. The fourth hypothesis presented consisted of three aspects of collective socialization would directly influence on the misbehavior as well as well-being of today’s youth. These three aspects of the collective socialization consist of proximal peers, distal peers, as well as...
