Social and Motor Development

Social behavior affects a person’s movement behavior, and conversely, there are equally strong effects

on an individual’s social development


A duel, lifelong process of interaction and development through which humans learn:

Who they are

How they are connected to the social worlds in which they live

The orientations and guidelines used as a basis for behavior and group life

Social role – an expected behavior by a social group in a particular situation

Occupational roles (teacher, doctor, lawyer)

Family roles (mother, father, sister, brother)

Norm – a set of expectations about how we should act in a given situation

Socialization teaches members of a society their social roles, occupational roles, family roles and norms

Society’s role expectations influence human motor development

Societal norms can facilitate or impede an individual’s movement development

Self-esteem – how much we believe ourselves to be competent, successful, significant, and worth

Involvement in directed play or physical education can enhance self-esteem in children

Self-concept – perception of self

Self-worth – overall value that one places on oneself as a person


Self-worth Development

Early Childhood Cannot make judgments about self-worth
Has difficulty discerning between cognitive and physical skills
Mid-late Childhood Physical appearance and social acceptance are the most important elements of self-worth
Adolescence Can distinguish feelings about friendship, romantic appeal, and job competence
Friend and teacher support are major contributors to self worth
College Age Global self-worth becomes a function of perceived self-worth
Adulthood Further distinction among elements of self-worth attained during previous stage continues

Social Influences


Primary socializing agent during childhood


Major socializing force


School “later” becomes a major socializing force in children

Social Influences During Childhood


Most important socializing force

Family’s view on physical activity determines child’s movement habits

Family can be an important predictor of a child’s future involvement in sport

Socialization During Adolescence

Gender role conflict

Experienced by girls who participate in activity and for boys who do not

Boys are more easily socialized into sports

40% do not participate in leisure time physical activity
By age 75, 30% of men and 50% of women engage in no physical activity

Obesity is more common among Mexican American and African American women than white women
