This study examined the way language socialization fostered literacy development. It aims at exploring and illustrating how the richness of multimodal and multilingual communicative practices has been part of parent-child interaction at home in Jagir community in Surabaya. Twenty one first grade elementary school students reside in urban area were observed during learning activities at home for a period of 12 months. Audio and video recorded of parent-child verbal interactions were transcribed and analyzed and children writing portofolio were assessed. Based on micro level analysis of parent-child interaction the studies examine the pattern of socialization. The result of the research shows that to teach their children, parents use several strategies which are multimodal in nature leading to children development of multiliteracies. It has been suggested that multimodal text making with parents (which includes the use of voice, image, and gesture) as well as the use of technological facilities help children cope with school literacy practices. Not only are students skillful in reading and writing task, but they also develop critical thinking which is very important for their ability of solving school assignment. The findings point on the implications of language socialization by discerning at the interaction between caregiver and child, rather than just one side of the conversation as conceived hitherto by most of language socialization studies.
