Rachel Mantor's curator insight, April 3, 2013 12:29 PM

I don't think adults should try to influence gender appropriate behavior in children. Adults should let both boys and girls decide what toys they'd like to play with. Gender shouldn't be so black and white. Children should be developed into people, and their preferences shouldn't be restricted by their gender.

Lori Timewell's curator insight, July 29, 2016 12:03 AM

Dr Robin Banerjee asks why very young children exhibit stereotyped ideas about gender roles. Research on the topic of  gender development in children has been followed through with factors that lead to gender stereotypes. This is relevant for me with relation to raising my children and also projecting into their futures.

Interesting article! It shows teachers the importance of depicting math and other technical subjects like science, as being equally for boys and girls. In general, the sky's the limit for kids'aspirations in this day an age.

Kelly O'Hara's curator insight, April 11, 2016 3:57 PM
In terms of credibility, the source is the Herald Sun, an Australian news source. I looked for citations or some sort of works cited page to support the quotations included in the article, and I could find none. However, because there isn’t too much science involved in this article, it’s more about interpretation and opinion, it’s not too bad, but there should still be some kind of works cited to give credit to those who were quoted. The author is a woman, Anna Brain Weekend, and therefore I feel there is a bias in her article. Since the article entails how animated characters are becoming more feminist over time with the women’s empowerment move that’s currently occurring, that could mean that there is a bias due to the fact the author is a woman. However, there is no mention that the author is a feminist, or supports woman’s rights. Therefore there isn’t much ethos to this article. I think the author mostly uses logos, as she’s stating logical things- if someone is exposed to something, it will have an effect on them in some way, positive or negative.

I like the topics pertaining to gender stereotypes. This one describes how its even started before we are born. If we know our friend is having a baby girl, we buy them pink necessities for the baby. Pink is for girls and blue is for boys. Its an automatic assumption. This can tell me why and some background behind it.
