The commercials that are targeted and shown to children often feature the hegemonic ideologies surrounding gender, even if the television shows featured on the channel are considered diverse (Kahlenberg & Hein, 2009). Nickelodeon is one of the pioneering television channels for children and is very outspoken about their inclusion of non-stereotypical female leads on their shows, as mentioned by Kahlenberg & Hein (2009), (as cited in Seiter & Mayer, 2004, p. 122), but unfortunately this outspoken diversity does not translate to the commercials being featured.

Although my research was mainly to find how parenting styles affect child development, it can be concluded that parents do play a role in a child's cognitive development, however it affects other areas of development as well. According to Piaget, children develop in certain stages and substages which don’t 100 percent have to do with parenting styles. Although a parent can set the stage for how the child will grow up and view the world, a lot of cognitive development occurs naturally.
