Discuss the main agencies of social control


Few of the main agencies of social control are, family, neighbourhood, church, religion, school, law and administration. The first place where a person learns to socialise is the family. He gets to learn about relations, folklore, customs, traditions etc from the family. A person's behaviour is moulded by suggestion, advice, criticism etc. The neighbourhood is certainly the very next step where a person is socialised. The neighbourhood infact strengthens the family as a powerful unit. Its's influence is felt through the  same manner as a family, that is by ridicule, criticism, etc.
