Since the parents don’t set the boundaries for the children, they lack the skills in social setting. They might be good at interpersonal communication as they are free to their own will and parents have no control over it, children lack the other important skills like sharing. Freedom without limits leads to significant consequences in children’s upbringing (Gross, 2016). This can lead to the lack of organization skills, motivation and lack of self-discipline. These findings suggest that permissive parenting style could lead to negative outcomes of overall development of children as they will grow up struggling with problem-solving skills and may likely to engage in misconduct.
Some feminist argue that the practice is necessarily wrong because it “separates sex from reproduction, transfers the burden to another woman, and separates child reproduction from child rearing” (p.454-456). However, Purdy finds the arguments very unconvincing. There is no evidence to suggest that surrogacy is harmful to children, and she agrees that it is more likely that banning or criminalizing surrogacy would result in substantial harm to children. She argues that surrogacy does not necessarily constitute the commodification or degradation of children. Purdy examines that surrogacy is not just baby selling, but a better characterization of the birth mother... ... middle of paper ... ...ther is now responsible to the baby inside her, and thus, it will coerce women to go through pregnancy and the possibility of raising the child alone.
The parents made this choice not the baby. As sad as it is, one of the biggest things that people are defined by is our biological sex than gender. Families that are raising genderless babies face many complications with the societies response to the deviation as people against this practice comments, “One more messed up kid in the world and this is so wrong in so many ways” (Davis and James). If the purpose is to let an individual to have freedom of choice, one should also keep in mind that it is one thing for a person to just decide later in life if they want to choose a different path of behavior to live by.

A Reflection on Genders From the first breath a newborn takes as it enters this world, every movement thereafter is monitored. As children grow and mature their actions are reflective upon the gender in which they were bestowed. Believed to be natural behavioral patterns, the treatment of young children does in fact affect their development. The article, “Learning to Be Gendered,” by Penelope Eckert and Sally McConnell-Ginet highlights the effects gender specific names, colors, and even toys relay on young developing children. Eckert and McConnell-Ginet correctly state that the gender specific behaviors parents place on children are more powerful than they had originally thought.
Other adults, peers, and society take their turn in marking their territory. In order to raise a child free from gender stereotypes, that child must be home schooled, not allowed to entertain themselves with most reading material available, and could not be permitted to socialize with anyone outside their “regulator.” The way in which society has been constructed restricts the level of censorship available outside the home. In other words this society has such an immense amount of gender stereotypes within every aspect of the outside world that it would be just about impossible to out run their impact. Ideally each person should be able to get past what society dictates, yet it is much easier to fall into the trap of acceptance. It is very difficult to parade a boy of two years old, in a pink outfit without feeling the stare of disapproval from outsiders.
(2012) examined gender-typed play across social contexts in order to examine if the social context influences a child’s gender-typed activity choice. The varying social contexts they accounted for were if the child was playing with boys, girls, a mixture of the two, or the teacher (Goble et al., 2012). This is important to consider because the frequency at which each type of social context is present will potentially have an impact on the rate of various gender-typed activities (Goble et al., 2012). Research shows that children prefer to play with children of their same gender who engage in the roughly the same amount of gender-typed activities as they do (Martin et al., 2013). This pattern leads to children spending most of their time playing in groups that are sex-segregated (Martin et al., 2013).
In the third phase, we find that Kohlberg believes that children age 6 to 10 years begin to comprehend the gender differences between them. We find that kids at this stage, they begin to develop their skills on this basis. At this stage may not happen without any intervention of the parents, but the children get some confusion; for example, a child who has a tendency to carry out activities of gender, we find the parents are suffering at this stage because the child 's return to its own stereotypes. Also, at this stage, we find that the competition between the sexes is increasing somewhat, so that we see the kids are trying to prove gender personality. We can now say that the stereotype of children throughout
Firstly, Bandura (1977) notes that the idea that social influences clearly plays a very significant role in the development of gender identity. Socialization makes children aware that there are differences between male and female, and that these sex differences matter. These social pressures also suggest there are specific gender stereotypes that they are expected to conform to. Nevertheless, it can also be seen that biological and cultural changes interact with these social factors, thus defining how an individual eventually develops the gender identity of a man or a woman. An alternative theory, expressed by Kohlburg (1966), suggests that children are not the recipients of any physical information from social experiences and therefore they search for specific regulations which will explain the way in which males and females are expected to behave.
Habermas would argue that interfering in prenatal biology is a form of strategic action. That the action would be an act of one sided manipulation. If one engages in positive eugenics, it changes the very nature of the parent child relationship. While a parent may be truthful and sincere in what they believe is right for the child, they cannot do so legitimately. The parents do not have the authority to dictate what their child may become.
After they can label themselves as boy or girl they begin to show a preference for gender-typed activities and materials. According to Lev Vygotsky, a Russian psychologist, Adults promote this learning by role-modeling behavior, assisting with challenging tasks, and passing along cultural meanings to objects and events. All of these are components of gender development. Denying the existence of stereotyped perceptions succeeds only in perpetuating and manifesting gender-based polarization of children’s behavior. To help children become more open-minded, we must ... ... middle of paper ... ...ritically evaluated for gender biases.
