might be friends, work mates or other
members of groups who often give us approval
and guidance on how to behave.

First paragraph of a perfect answer
One key agents of socialisation responsible for
transmitting norms and values is the family. The family
which is a primary agent of socialisation transmit
norms and values to their children between the ages
of 0-5 such as saying please and thank you.
One the way in which the family transmits norms and
values is through the use of sanctions and rewards.
Sanctions such as sitting on the naughty step are used
when inappropriate behaviour is displayed, and rewards
such as treat or pocket money are given when
appropriate behaviour is displayed.
