    • Dimbleby & Burton (2006) ‘A sense of self’ Reactions of others? Comparisons with others? Dimbleby and Burton identified four key factors in the creation of a sense of self, here are two of them that relate to my presentation. When I first had my son, the reactions from other people (friends or strangers) had an impact on how I looked at myself. I found that people said I looked to young, so I tried to dress and act more maturely. I did compare myself with others; other mothers, even older ones because I wanted to see how a mother should act. As time went on though I got more comfortable with myself and stopped comparing myself to others
    • Cooley (1992) ‘Looking-glass’ Cooley suggested that a persons self comes from interpersonal communication and peoples perceptions. This is me with a group of friends friends. My friends see me as a teenager still so when I have nights out with them I see myself as a teenager. They perceive me as this teen party girl so when I am with them I act like how they see me This is my family. My son looks up to me and wants to see me as his mother so I automatically fall in to the mothering role around him.
