  1. Social roles are the part people play as members of a social group. With each social role you adopt, your behavior changes to fit the expectations both you and others have of that role.

    I spent most of my life raising children, teaching school, and traveling, sometimes by myself , around the U.S. and in many other countries. Now I'm an octogenarian and depend upon others to clean my house and get my groceries.
