What do sociological theories tell us about deviance and punishment in our society? When you think of these why do you think people cross the line and are either non-criminal deviants (such as refusing to bathe or being rude and loud in a restaurant) to being criminally deviant (such as breaking laws or murdering someone)? When we are young our parents or caregivers correct us when we cross-cultural and societal norms and are deviant; when we get older society does this too just differently. The folkways of our culture and society are taught to us when we are young. Do you recall any folkways from your childhood that helped you become a better adult?
