CITATION:

“…I think, that the attachments between parents and children are social mediated, particularly at a certain stage of the childs life, that is the teenage years, when the relationship becomes less intimate, that is about their nourishment and care, as they go through to the next stage of development with regards to familial changes, that is to do more so about their well-being, and that aspect does tend to be socially mediated by influences other than the parents.

But I also believe, that the parents still have the strongest attachment to their children, however, it’s just in a different form from being intimate, where the childrens’ development was watched carefully, to become personal instead, for this is when the childrens’ attachments are consolidated towards others in a very individual manner, that is one relation at a time would be re-established in terms of their welfare.  And only in this regard and stage, is it always socially mediated, and at no other time in their lives, in the relations between them none is more intense than during this period…”

GLOSSARY NOTE:

Conduct: Is the unification of sociological patterns of behaviour that are mediated and embedded with the powers of choice and of self-realisation in everyday practices.

Mediation:  Martin Albrow (1999) states the reality of social relations is a human achievement maintained through our senses and the ways in which we express ourselves in and through the material world, and this is done by the ‘mediation’ process. And we can perceive this embeddedness of relations in reality through the notion of ‘media’, which is the plural of ‘medium’. A medium permits in some way information about two or more subjects to be conveyed between them, hence they are ‘mediated’ and there are four broad types of media of social relations: sensate, ideational, technological and abstract systems.
