My first reason has to deal with the attitude of the parents can tend to lead their teens to acting the same. This is because the kids see their parents as role models but sometimes when the parent goes crazy over a game there kids see that and tend to act out too. My second reason is teens only wanting to win, not many teens like losing I don 't think anyone does but the problem is that kids don 't known how take in that they loss. My last reason is kids taking their frustration out on others. Many times the kid attitude are reflected on the athlete 's parents.
Kane defines the “gender trap” as the expectations created by society that restrain parents from allowing their kids to do the opposite of these expectations (2012: 3). Society has constructed these expectations of what is “acceptable” and what is “not acceptable” for each gender, and whether it is for their personal beliefs or moral, or for the safety of their children, these parents fall into the trap and have to decide if they want to reproduce or resist these expectations (2012: 3). Genderism is the belief imposed by society that there is only two genders, which is assigned to an individual at birth based off of their sexual genitalia. Anything out of this binary, is stigmatized and rejected by society. Goffman defines “Institutional reflexivity” as the extent to which society takes the biological differences between males and females into account for every aspect of daily life (1977: 302).
Gender is something people learn, that is, it is culturally constructed. For many people, gender seems natural because we start learning how to be women or men from the moment we are born. The stereotypes shown in these advertisements connect with the inequalities seen in adult life. Advertising potentially has the ability to shape the way children view careers and what an acceptable job might look like for a boy versus a girl. Therefore, when boys and girls are alienated from playing with certain toys as a young age, they are taught to alienate those who do not fit this gender binary, leading to a lack of awareness, understanding, and tolerance.
The use of this quote is to show that she isn’t angry about people mistaking her daughter for a boy but she doesn’t appreciate the reasoning behind why they are calling her a boy. And the last example of pathos is to make the audience feel more informed about what’s going on. “She is not gendered nonconforming. She is gender role nonconforming. She does not fit into the mold that we adults”(Davis 10).
For example, parents wear their children in stereotypically appropriated clothes of blue or pink color or buy them gender stereotypic toys. Besides parents try to bring up some ‘appropriate’ traits in their children. Even today girls are discouraged from playing sports like football or from playing ‘rough and tumble’ games and are more likely than boys to be given dolls or cooking toys to play with; boys are told not to ‘cry like a baby’ and are more likely to be given masculine toys like trucks and guns. Socializing influences like these are still thought to send implicit messages regarding how females and males should act and are expected to act shaping us into feminine and masculine
If they raise their children with equal amounts of attention than there will be less chance of jealousy. Sometimes a parent might treat their children differently due to gender, leading to a child asking why her brother can do this but she can 't and vice versa, but this is becoming less common nowadays. Stepsiblings or half siblings are also likely to have a rivalry, as they have not known each other for as long as blood relations have. Getting a new mother or father, new siblings and in some cases a new house is a huge change for children, especially younger ones. Often children like this feel forced into a new family too quickly which leads to distant or negative relationships with step siblings and the stepparent.
“Your child may see Dad all the time, or Dad may be out of the picture--or anything in between. It’s up to you, however, to make your childs feel loved no matter what”(Rachel 2). With single mothers it can be very difficult to give the love of both parents, and being able to do so with all the struggles they already go through can seem insane. The amount of emotional baggage and exhaustion that causes a person is insane, but of course she battles it will for the sake of her son. Telemachus not being able to see his father for so long was difficult, but being able to have a mother so loving and caring was an important part of his life.
To solve these problems parents try to use various ways of influence on their children. Some of them are effective, some are not, it is very individual and depends on the character of the teenager. Moreover, it is age of storm-and-stress that causes much misunderstanding. According to the scientific research, teenagers with proper upbringing have fewer problems with their parents and generation gap is not so noticeable in these families, contrary to children from dysfunctional families who suffer from the lack of parental care, misunderstanding and indifference. First and most effective way of influence in young people’s behavior is giving a good example.
This pattern follows within other characters. America’s brother, Gerad, is only 12 but he is feeling the pressure from his family to find a talent to be able to provide from and add his part to society. He knows what he wants to do at the moment; he has short term pleasures but does not know that they are temporary. He is fighting for what he feels is justified. Being the hard-headed teenager that America is, she often finds conflict between her opinions and the opinions of the selected girls that she meets.
Ultimately, the show portrays gender roles as something of much-needed change, but, in the short term, will be hard to achieve and will come with lots of problems. One way “Election Day” shows how gender roles are defined is through the usage of certain words, adding to the common idea: gender roles in society. The female candidate’s father says,¨I mean, we know that votings a privilege, but for my daughter to have her name on that ballot, it just means so much more.¨ (Modern Family: ¨Election Day,¨ line 91) When he says ¨my daughter,¨ it shows that he is proud and comfortable supporting the female candidate, even though she is going against “traditional¨ roles in society. He uses
