Homework Help: sociology

Posted by y912f on Saturday, July 18, 2009 at 9:00pm.

i'm learning about norms and values. (norms=shared rules of conduct and behavior that inform people how to act or behave in specific situations. There are two types of norms: folkways and mores. Folkways are norms that do not have great moral significance, for example: shaking hands when you are introduced to someone. Mores, on the other hand, have great moral significance attached to them. An example of mores is committing murder or another major violation of law.
values=Values are shared beliefs about what is good or bad, right or wrong, desirable or undesirable. Symbols such as language are important because they let us communicate our values to one another and to future generations)

can someone pleease help me think of some of the values and norms that are important to adolescents .
please just give me a few ideas, so i can get started. thank you
