In a society rife with gender stereotypes and biases, children regularly learn to adopt gender roles which are not always fair to both sexes. As children move through childhood and into adolescence, they are exposed to many factors which influence their attitudes and behaviours regarding gender roles. These attitudes and behaviours are generally learned first in the home and are then reinforced by the child‘s peers, school experience, and television viewing. However, the strongest influence on gender role development seems to occur within the family setting, with parents passing on, both overtly and covertly, their own beliefs about gender. This overview of the impact of parental influence on gender role development leads to the suggestion
Children desperately need their parents ' love and avowal as well as their authoritative guidance and rectification. Disciplining children is part of the tough work of parenting, but in the long run, the positive effects are very visible. There is a variety of ways of discipline teaching that can be enforced on to children. One of which includes physical punishment or spanking. Parents have been entrusted with the incredible privilege and responsibility of shaping their children 's behavior in a positive direction (Alto, 2006).
Males and females have biological differences, it is life experience that reinforces or contradicts those differences, however, they are not really as different as most perceive them to be, this fact lies in differential socialization, which claims that males and females are taught and influenced different appropriate behaviours for their gender by their first teacher and caregiver, their parents (Burn, Aboud, & Moyles 2000). At a young age, boys and girls spend most of their time in their home with their families and look up to their parents for guidance. Through observation of particular parental behaviors in the context of their family, children learn that certain actions may be drawn on as symbolic markers of gender (Cunningham, 2001). The parents are also the one that provides children with their first lessons about gender, one way that parents influence children’s gender development is through the role modeling and encouragement of different behaviors and activities in sons and daughters (Leaper, 2013). According to Bussey and Bandura (1999), parents also play an active role in setting the course of their children 's gender development by structuring, channeling, modeling, labeling, and reacting evaluatively to gender-linked conduct.
The environment that children grow up in also impacts the type of personality characteristics they develop. According to the AAP, if a couple fights in front of their child, he may display violent behavior, become introverted, cry regularly or have a personality that is conflict-driven, as they develop. Children growing up with other siblings learn to share with their family members, and a child who is part of a stable family environment feels belonged, which leads to a healthy self-esteem and individuality. According to The Family Pediatrics Report, the chances of having emotional, and behavioral problems are lower among children with two parents, while children of divorced parents are at higher risks. These risks include depression and a tendency to have relationship and social problems with one or both parents.
Meaning all the blemishes of the world we want to shield our child from sooner or later they will see the blemish, it 's better they learn how to deal with when they are younger than not know how to deal with it at all when they are older. When going to a public school, kids are usually interacting with others and can make new friends. This is a really important thing to learn as kids because it is useful in the future. Social interactions help people develop soft skills which are useful later in life like when getting a job. Homeschooling is known as the practice of educating children at home rather than sending them to a public or private school.
‘Good parenting is authoritative in which parents keep eyes on their children and try to understand the mindset of their children.’(Sarwar, 2016) Somebody comment authoritative style is utility, but under psychology sense it provides a mutual communication to the kids. In conclusion, there is still room for discussion on how parenting style affect children and what is the effectiveness in teaching
“Families are one of the strongest socializing forces in life. They teach children to control unacceptable behavior, to delay gratification, and to respect the rights of others. Conversely, families can teach children aggressive, antisocial, and violent behavior (Wright & Wright 1994)”. It goes without saying that, the place where behavior patters begin is the home. By teaching your child a proper communication, interaction and social skills will eventually leads him/her to succeed.
Introduction Family structure has a great influence on children’s experiences and development. With the constant growth and advancement happening in our society, the structure of the family, as well as the values and beliefs being valued and preserved by our ancestors, flows with the profound changes. Even though variations are evident, parents still desire to ensure that their young learners acquire their needs and learn the basic skills at school that are essential in coping with the demands of the fast-changing society and uncontrollable external factors that may affect their general well-being. However, they tend to neglect the importance of their presence in their children’s education, excluding themselves in the process due to some factors brought by their existing family structure. Gentry (2011) stated that parents’ investment in their child’s education have been disheartening, showing only about one-fifth of parents consistently attending school programs, having nearly one-third of parents with no idea on their child’s status in school and only about one-sixth of all students reporting that their parents don’t care whether they earn good grades in school or not.
Chapter 1 THE PROBLEM AND ITS BACKGROUND Introduction “Television viewing causes people to duplicate inappropriately, in other areas of their lives, behavior styles developed while watching television.” (Kottak, 1990) Television programs can be educational as well as entertaining. It can give people the opportunity to travel around the globe, expose them to new ideas that they might not have encountered from their community and also a chance to learn about different cultures. Pro-social messages from shows on television will give a positive impact on the behavior of today 's youth. However, these youths are more likely to learn negative values from these television programs. Television has now become a debatable issue as some question its influences on the attitude and psychological development of today 's youth.
Role of Television Advertisement on Children Consumer Socialization: Kids play a prominent role in the decision making of a family as they are the cynosure in the family. Moreover, the changing demographic factors, the rise in the number of single parents, dual career families and the delay in marrying and having children have brought lots of influencing power into the hands of small kids and teenagers. Parents do not think twice in yielding or submitting to the demands and wishes of their kids, because of their rising affluence or the impact of nuclear families. Hence, kids and teenagers have bigger role to play in the decision making of the family in certain categories of products, if not all. The product categories in which kids have a
