“The process of gender stereotyping continues through childhood, adolescence, and adulthood. [Also], gender stereotyping involves expectations about how people should behave based on their gender” (Pg. 416). It probably isn’t hard for us to figure out that parents, peers and culture are the biggest influences that socialize children into their gender roles. Parents, peers and culture are the role models that children follow throughout their formative years.

After you have read “Traditional Gender-Role Stereotypes over the Lifespan”, and watched the video “Big Think Interview With Lise Eliot”, provide the requested information below and/or answer the following questions in paragraph form. In addition to using “Traditional Gender-Role Stereotypes over the Lifespan” on Page 416 and the video “Big Think Interview with Lise Eliot,” don’t forget to use the textbook authors as well as at least one external academic source (and cite all of them appropriately with APA formatting).

(a) Explain whether you feel that children should be guided by social expectations in regard to what toys they play with or should they be allowed to explore on their own regarding their individual preferences? Explain your response. 

(b) What do you think would happen if we did not guide children to the socially acceptable choice of toy for their gender? 

(c) If we don’t socially guide the child to play with a certain gender appropriate toy, will the child miss out on discovering their true identity? Please explain what is meant by this. 

(d) Do you believe the guidance adds an element of normalcy and guidance or forces expectations on the child? Please explain. 

(e) According to the video titled “Big Think Interview, with Lise Eliot”, at age 1 girls and boys both like dolls because dolls have faces and all children are instinctively attracted to faces and voices. This is because we are a social species. At what age do boys opt for boy toys, and girls opt for girl toys and explain why you believe it changes at this age. 

(f) Explain at what age children typically begin to figure out if they are a boy or a girl and what you think actually occurs for this to happen at this age?
