(2012), parenting styles are crucial agents that influencing all aspects and stages of a child 's development. According to Maccoby & Martin (1983) (as cited in Ishak et al., 2012) parenting is a continuum and includes two significant elements “responsiveness” and “demandingness”. According to Baurmind (1991); the parental demandingness refers to “the claims parents make on children to become integrated into the family as a whole, by their maturity demands, supervision, disciplinary efforts and willingness to confront the child who disobeys’’ and responsiveness refers to ‘‘the extent to which parents intentionally foster individuality, self-regulation, and self-assertion by being attuned, supportive and acquiescent to children’s special needs and

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.
Are are children taught to see girls as inferior to boys? When does this occur? This paper will help to shed light on how gender roles develop in childhood and why certain roles are cast for certain genders in various cultures. From a very young age, children are socialized to adhere
The gender role continues as the child grows up. The gender role usually develop, given the limits to what biological differences can explain, how do males and females learn such different roles? The values and expectations of society are transmitted through the socialization process. (pp: 226 John E. Farley & Michael W. Flota).

Parents’ Perception on Gender Spectrum. In a society that is negatively rich with gender biases and stereotypes, children eventually resort in adopting gender roles which does not necessarily give fair perception to both sexes. Children who are exposed to both internal and external factors shape their attitudes and behaviors towards traditional gender roles as they move through stages of adolescence and ultimately in adulthood. Witt (1997) argued that these attitudes, character, and behaviors are learned at firstly at home which are then heightened by the school experience, child’s friends or peers, and television viewing and other external factors after social bonds are formed outside a family setting. However, it is primarily the family setting that strongly influences the child’s gender role development.
