By doing so, parents have tried to set up their children’s lives to meet certain criteria based on their gender. “Parents want all their children, whether they are boys or girls, to be happy and successful. Yet a recent study of Internet search data suggests that American parents do in fact hold different expectations for their children based on sex. For one, they want their boys to be smarter and their girls skinnier. (Michael 1).” For example, a father of two would most likely encourage his son’s progression in athletics and school work, and his daughter to excel in bettering herself.
How does Homeschooling Affect Children? Is homeschooling going to hurt your child or benefit your child? Homeschooling is debated by many parents throughout the United States. Many parents believe that they can do a better job than public schools because the can utilize the many different styles of homeschooling which may be better for their children. Homeschooling is a better option than public schooling because children can learn more about what interests them, parents are the primary influence to their children, the students are more independent, families have more free time, children learn more effectively with many options, and children get to wear their pajamas.
INTRODUCTION Many parents and educators are led to believe that single-sex education can eliminate the distractions for students in the classroom. There is evidence that suggests that there are significant gains for children who attend single-sex schools, especially girls, and that these schools encourage the students to flourish. However, there is an ongoing debate about the impact that single-sex schools have on both the academic achievement and social skills, and there are studies that suggest with an increase in gender stereotyping comes problematic behaviors. (Van Thompson, Demand Media) Coeducation is seen as improving educational efficiency (Woody, 1929) and encouraging a positive social relationship between boys and girls. However, some studies, such as that by Coleman (1961), indicated that coeducation had a negative effect on girls’ academic achievement due to the peer pressure to prioritise relations with the opposite sex rather than schoolwork.

I found the information in lecture 1, to be particularly interesting. When it comes to raising our children, I thought all parents wanted the best for them. That includes good morals, honesty, independency, and successful in life. However, every class is different. For example, the upper class want their kids to curious, while the lower prefers them to be truthful.
All parents want to be good parents. When parents use the parenting style that their parents once used it is usually because they do not know any other parenting style to use. Or they think that since their parent’s parenting style worked on them, then it will work on their children. Making decisions to help mold your child into a good person can be controversial amongst families. The “lowest point in marriage” is when kids in the family reach teenage years.
