Think of a recent time when you used informal negative sanctions with another adult. (See 7.1 in the textbook.) To what act of deviance were you responding? Provide an outside reference explaining that the behavior in question is generally considered deviant. How did your actions affect the deviant person or persons? How did your reaction help maintain social control?
Be sure to explain clearly what the deviant act was and what the negative sanction was. If formal sanctions are also mentioned, clearly distinguish between what was informal and what was formal.
