Der Prozess der Sozialisation sollte kein beschwerliches Unterfangen werden, sondern sich "automatisch" im Familienleben vollziehen. Wenn Eltern optimistic Vorbilder sind und auch das Umfeld eines Kindes sich positiv gestaltet, wird ein style sich auch an Regeln, sozialen Normen und Werte, die die Eltern ihm vorlebt und erklärt, anpassen. Durch gegenseitige Achtung, durch Förderung der Eigenverantwortlichkeit, durch die Bereitschaft zum Zuhören, durch die Toleranz gegenüber anderen Einstellungen und Erfahrungen, durch Kompromissbereitschaft und Gewaltverzicht können Werte, die den Eltern zur Vermittlung an ihre Kinder wichtig sind, von den Kindern internalisiert und emotional betrachtet werden.
