While, it has been found that stereotype is one of the reasons that makes girls to hinder in math and other stem subjects. According to (Steel,1997)"Stereotype refers to a decrease in test performance in situations where individuals feel threatened by the possibility that their performance will confirm—to others, and/or themselves—a negative stereotype about their group abilities" (psychol,2016). Girls perform similarly to the boys throughout elementary schools or show better performance in the subjects like math, science and computer. However, things change when they step their adulthood. Studies show that girls start to feel less confidence in math abilities than boys since, boys are more encouraged in science and math by their teachers and parents.
As a result, boys have learned to perform as a male and girls have learned to perform as a female. Boys and girls used to share similar characteristics and behaviors, but parents have stepped in and interfered with their personal choices. "Until about the age of two, boys and girls exhibit the same play behaviors...But whatever the
Girls looks and feminism shouldn’t be the reason why girls aren’t allowed on a boy’s sports team. Girls should be allowed to play on boy’s sports teams because girls could be as strong as boys, girls should be treated as fair as the boys, and girls are capable of playing rough sports. Many underestimate girls strength which then results into a division in sports with boys and girls. Girls could be just as strong as boys. Sports such as football where you tackle is considered a “boys” sport because of how strong the player needs to be able to tackle someone.
In common father pressure on son to become masculinity and force boys to involve and listen father’s command than boy’s dream. Most of the time boys have hard to expression their feeling because they do not want share with feeling with other people and to avoid be weakness.

Alcohol and certain recreational drugs,can be the cause of this carelessness when it comes to sex, it can be that confidence booster that will give you that pleasure in the moment, but the regret will you have be the next day. Girls tend to get drunk faster than guys do and can affect their bodies in different ways. On the other hand, boys tend to have a different attitude, I mean alcohol loosens inhibitions but it also can reduce people ability to read social cues, so if a girl says “no” they can't ignore it and be more aggressive. However, this shows how much more parents need to be involved with their children lives and teach them to drink more responsibility and the impacts it can have. In conclusion, Girls and Sex is a good novel filled with interviews that make people view things in a different perspective some more emotional than others but this is targeted for us college students to realize what views people have in terms of religion, politics, race, family composition, wealth and what your sexual identity is.
Some have stressed the possible existence of biological and cognitive differences between boys and girls which would explain the difference in their academic performance, but this is a less substantiated assumption in general. Studies that have controlled for intelligence for example, still found lower grades for boys, ruling out some of the possibilities for cognitive differences. However, one possible physical and psychological difference between the two sexes, which could be presenting itself in this issue, is that boys seem to mature later than girls do. Therefore, Michael Thompson, author of “Look it’s a Boy!”, criticizes the trend in testing children earlier on in their lives, claiming it would create an environment in which girls are favoured over boys. This could be an explanation for why we see boys delaying their kindergarten entry and repeating it more often than girls do, simply “because they are not ready yet”.
Boys and girls develop and learn in different ways, “sometimes [boys] find little relevancy in the curriculum, they become less motivated to learn the subject matter” (Ogden, page 36 ). Dr. Bruce Perry, a Houston neurologist, who advocates for trouble kids believes that “[in] the last two decades, the education system has become obsessed with a quantifiable and narrowly defined kind of academic success, and that myopic view is harming boys. Boys are biologically, developmentally and psychologically different from girls--and teachers need to learn how to bring
For example, the evolutionary perspective acknowledges the importance of the environment in shaping the child during the development process. Both perspectives acknowledge this argument in that it proposes that the environment shapes the human’s mind and how certain problems are solved. The ecological model has biological factors as a subsystem that influences the development of a child (Buss, 2015). On the other hand, evolutionary perspective narrows its emphasis to the biological component and how it transforms with the factor time. The genetic and the environmental mechanisms underline the development of social competencies in a child.
It is definitely a fact that girls tend to mature a little faster than boys, developing language skills sooner and giving them the edge over boys in reading, writing and speech. Boys may like to build things, manipulate objects and picture complex objects in their minds. Now this explains why boys are drawn to construction, building puzzles and even playing video games. On the other hand as a teacher I realize that girls generally like to talk. And they will talk
