Four of the subcultures that I am a part of are first, being a mother, second a student at EACC, third, an Arkansas Razorbacks fan and finally, my religion.

Most people who are mothers have the same values, and that is to raise happy, healthy and successful children. I would say the language used as a mother changes as your children grow older.
The second subculture I am a part of is being a student at EACC. This is something that is new to me.

Finally, my religion, which is Baptist, is my other subculture. I don’t go to church very often, but I still believe in God, and know what is right from wrong. The values of most Christians is to believe in God and do what is right, and that is what I try to do. The language while at church is mainly speaking about God.

The difference in a counterculture and a subculture, is that a counterculture is not widely accepted in society, and subcultures are very common, and accepted in our...
