Parents treat sons and daughters differently. Parents would have their sons and daughters to participate in sex typed activities. For example, boys are more likely to be encouraged to play sports, while girls are encouraged to participate in housekeeping activities.
In an article on Livestrong, the author writes about Laura E. Berk’s suggestion that, “somewhere between ages 9 and 11 kids begin to develop gender stereotypes.” The article also mentions, “Involving them (children) in coed sports early is an opportunity to curb those notions before they start.” By involving children in co-ed sports, male and females learn to respect one another’s abilities, both while on and off the field. Some critics say that children can learn to respect their peers in other ways, such as school, or other gender specific sports. While this is true, not all activities, such as schools, have respectful environments.
Of course some girls actually and they do just fine, is just the girls actually trying. Also they are some sports and activities in High Schools that are gender neutral such as: pom poms, badminton, R.O.T.C and cheerleading. In conclusion I do not necessary agree that boys are being raised wrong.
Kids that are spanked are more likely to kit others. Kids will follow in their parents footsteps. They were raised that way so they think it is okay. They don’t really know any other way to resolve a problem than by hitting. So if a kid gets into an argument at school they are more likely to hit their peers and other people.
Children from a very early stage are taught that for doing something there already supposed to be doing they get a prize or gift, while potty training a lot of parents will bribe the kids with toys or treats if they successfully use the bathroom teaching kids that when they do something that their parents like they get something in return.

As a child, it is parents who imprint their own expectations of what a model child should look like. Gender is often used as a stencil to guide the behavior of the child and introduce the distinctions between feminine and masculine roles. Females are typically given dresses and Barbie’s to embrace their femininity while males, are typically given Legos and athletic gear to display their masculinity. As the child grows, teachers and other authoritative figures guide the child by this same stencil of what it means to be a man and what it means to be a woman. Males are expected to exude confidence, strength, and courage.
The competitions usually have cash prizes for the "Supreme" winner. Some also get scholarships for better education. Practicing and staying in shape for these Pageants teach young women with discipline and pride in their personal appearance. But kids have also lost their sense of innocence quickly because of the inappropriate outfits they are required to wear for the judges to score them higher.
When a child is born they go through the process of figuring out who they really are, as well as who they want to be. Society in many ways negatively impacts the freedom a child has whilst exploring this phase in life. It dictates what to do, and what not to do. Strong parental figures help shield young kids away from society at large and allow them to make their own decisions without any fear. Through reading the pieces “My son is Gay” and “I like to wear dresses” and Ivan Coyote we see how hatred directed towards children for just being themselves often discourages children from exploring their gender.
As children grow they start to see different aspects of life and figure out what their likes and dislikes are. A childhood teaches the morals of knowing right from wrong; for example, bullying a person is wrong but being nice to someone is right, telling a lie to your parents so you will not get in trouble is wrong but telling your parents the truth and taking your punishment is right. This in time lays a foundation for a child and its future. This child can start to make decisions on what it might want to be when it grows up or what it wants to make of itself. A child needs a foundation like childhood to grow on, yet this childhood
“The Overprotected Kid” seems to be written to an audience of new parents or parents dealing with teenagers. However, both looking for instructions on how to properly raise their children. At the start of the article, Rosin describes the setting of young kids playing at “The Land” and how this particular playground was made not just for entertainment, but for the overall development of a child. By lessing parental supervisors and increasing the freedom to learn in an environment, the kids can shape and mold it to be whatever they need while allowing the children to assimilate risks
Patrick Holt English 802 Joshua Lukin Temple University 1/25/16 The debate about how to help young boys perform better in school is anything but simple. There are many different views and opinions on the matter. Some believe that it is very feminine environment that boys are introduced to in the classroom and making the classroom more appealing to boys is the best solution. This view is championed by the article How Boys Learn, written by Michael Gurian and Kathy Stevens.
The Mask You Live In, produced by Jennifer Newsom, published on January 25, 2015, represented by the Representation Project, is a documentary that summarizes how boys are shaped into men, according to society. The movie is intended on how most boys tend to hide their emotions, starting in early manhood, because society portrays men as being weak and how men should show their dominance. The documentary also portrays on athletic ability and economic success. Newsom proves in this documentary that boys should not hide their true emotions and they should come out for who they really are.
