Value and attitude formation and internalization go through many steps according to Langen (1995):

  2. Responding to or assuming or participating actively in practicing a new value or attitude. The child responds by practicing the new value.
  3. Valuing or attaching worth to the new value or attitude, thereby beginning to build a consistent value system. The child starts attaching value to the new attitude or value system.
  4. Organizing and bringing together different values and attitudes thereby beginning to build a consistent value system. The child starts selecting and building his/her own value system from the experience she has been exposed to.
  5. Internalizing or adopting and applying a new value system that shows consistent and stable behavior patterns
