From before birth, children suffer differences around : treatment , speech , values ... often parents do not realize .
From babies, children begin to form their role within the family. Boy and girl, pink and blue , cars and dolls ... society gender label us , and that means differences. To what extent must educate specifically for boys or girls ? What behaviors to avoid in house to discourage inequality?
Boys and girls, different and equivalent
Boys and girls are different physically , biologically , and even in some levels of conduct. The social as home, family , school , television , are responsible for modeling these prototypes especially during the child's infancy .
This in itself is not negative : we can not help at home treat children differently than girls , and accept these differences does not imply discrimination. What you need to avoid at all costs is the valuation that some are better or more valid than others.
Parents: what do we do ?
It is essential to value attitudes , mores within the family that may be sexist or separatists :
Children's toys : there is not suitable boy toys and girl . Furthermore , especially in the case of girls , many toys encourage male or female stereotypes very far from reality . Similarly, children can play with dolls , and girls with toy tools .
Family Relations : assessing the level of "equality" is in the house , for example, in how parents share the tasks of home.
Television and media : young children should watch TV in the company of an adult. You have to know what the child sees , and assess whether it is appropriate for their age.
The values that we transmit to educate must be based on equality.
