Accepted and Improper Behaviours in Child Socialisation: Body Codes as a Case study The paper aims at discussing issues related to socialisation and the shaping of our behaviour, the way we are, and our thoughts. Since the moment we are born, we are being moulded into the beings the society wants us to be, and through socialisation we also learn the difference between the "Accepted" and the "Improper" conducts and behaviours for both gender. This paper will focus on how parents and family transmit codes of conducts, ideas, beliefs and values. Socialisation begins at home, where parents have the opportunity to emphasize their most deeply held values. From a very young age, children are exposed to discourses about body, nudity, privacy, and specific gender education about proper conduct. Parental responses to early infant queries about their bodies are covered with untruthful explanations. Parents, in their role as transmitters of values and codes of the society, teach their children the behavioural relation between the Body and the Accepted-Forbidden conducts. By doing so, they transmit their own values without taking into account the kids' needs for answers about the reasons behind the codes of conduct and for understanding values of society.
