They are then passed on to the next generation. (Do not recognize participation as a key social value thus it is not transmitted to the next or current generation) As young people, we look around us and see many things happening that replicate our personal experiences, giving rise to STEREOTYPES through practicing of adult behaviors and discriminatory behaviour by adults (practicing of peer violence/humiliation etc. and non- participation of children in family, schools, community etc. As children we experience the world through social institutions – our individual personal experience gives rise to PREJUDICE through practicing of adult behaviors (E.g. violent/aggressive means seen as methods to resolve conflict or similarly lack of child participation in families/communities/etc.) As old people, we tend to reinforce the same stereotypes and bias behaviors back into the society Individual acts create and maintain
