Trying to differentiate between mores, folkways, taboos, laws and some terminology regarding such: - Mores are MORE strict and have to do with our morals ("Right vs Wrong" ex: child abuse - Folkways are WAYS to live in society ("Right vs Rude") ex: shaking somebody's hand when you greet them - Taboos are like mores, except they usually are repulsive and may lead to stigmatization. Ex: You don't marry your sister - Laws are enforced by social institutions and are usually written down.

Formal norms = written down, the Law Informal norms = not written down but prevalent in society. Includes folkways, mores, and taboos.

Am I missing anything? Thanks yall
