    What about social capital?

    Young children bring the cultural customs of their families to preschool. These customs include both spoken and body language. An example is the 10-year-old Korean child who moves to the U.S. In Korea she was taught not to look teachers in the eyes. Of course here, the teachers expect children to look them in the eyes.

    The social capital a child brings involves how his parents and siblings treat him. If they fight and suffer physical abuse, the child will likely display these behaviors at school.
