Throughout the essay, I see the interesting approach Wallace takes to try convince the audience. In my opinion she is unsuccessful. Wallace’s major claim, giving children the vote, is a good one and something many kids cringe about these days. She presents this argument in defense of kids, including herself, which she feels are being discriminated against. Wallace was home schooled, so she believes children should not be punished for choosing not to attend school.
By exposing the latent sexism of this common barb, it sends a message to parents that they need to help to empower their daughters as well as teach their children that these comments can be hurtful. The successful combination of rhetorical devices proves that this ad campaign has hit it’s intended mark. The commercial’s main focus is interviewing people of all ages interpreting the phrase “like a girl.” The female director asks the first young woman to show what it means to run like a girl, at which point the teenager begins to jog in place, moving her arms indiscriminately, and making sure her hair stays just so. The director asks the same thing of a young woman, a

Her education has given her the chance to take control of her own life. I think Willy Russell clearly shows how education can change people and how others around them react to the changes, that’s one of the main themes of the play. Willy Russell grew up in a place where he wasn’t expected to learn or be anything more then a factory worker and he saved up money and took a course to help him become a writer.
In the future, maybe the media will see the impact it is having on our youth and change for the better. I don’t see that happening anytime soon but I will do all I can to keep my children from being confused about who they are.

If parents, trying to make their children’s life easier, simply promote stereotypical behavior, we will have a mass of mediocre citizens. However, if the parents motivate their children to verify before trusting and make up their own mind before taking sides, no school can modify such individuals or turn them into a silent rule-abiding conformist. Then the only thing that the creators of the system would be capable of doing is (and here I agree with Gatto) managing themselves. So let’s allow them do it! Works Cited Gatto, John Taylor.

Barbie produces both gender ... ... middle of paper ... ...d parents still insist on buying their children Barbie’s. In conclusion, Barbie’s should not be banned because it may lower the chances for a child to grow as a person. Barbie’s contain the essential resources which children use to strengthen their mind also the many lessons that can be learned using Barbie’s or action figures. If Barbie’s are banned it could have an outrageous effect on a child’s creativity and on their learning center.
The distinguishing of gender in children is a continuing debate, in regards to, determining what in fact causes children to differentiate their own gender. Nature versus nurture comes into play as people ask themselves, if parents are the cause of boys acknowledging themselves as boys and girls as girls. By only participating in stereotypical boy or girl activities, nature’s course is undermined. In Katha Pollitt’s essay “Why Boys Don’t Play With Dolls” she explains why she believes that it is society’s influence that truly teaches a child to act like his or her own gender. Pollitt briefly discusses patriarchy and how parents unknowingly begin building the basis of a child’s identity since early childhood.
Children are gullible not only to commercials but to their parents, as they are instructed from the beginning of their lives to believe every word their mother and father say. It is reasonable, then, to link gender roles more closely with parental teachings than the bright pinks and blues of television advertisements and plastic toys. While gendered toys and television commercials may influence children’s adherence to gender roles, it is up to their parents to control whether or not their child follows or rejects the stereotypes. As written by Maria Guido (2014), “The truth is, our children are more attentive to us – their parents – than their toys” (para. 6).
The toy industry makes it seem acceptable that only certain toys are suitable for one or the other gender by marketing them as such. For a parent to differ, it would mean stepping out of the box, possibly alienating their child from others with a choice that might seem odd. Rather than making their child feel or appear awkward, parents continue to support the gender biases found in toys, thereby promoting gender socialization. It is important however, that parents, as role models and consumers, must be diligent in their choices and make decisions that will help either negate or balance out gender biases in
