Reading Preferences Between Boys And Girls

These colors have been so ingrained in the western cultural psyche they must have far-reaching traditional value. Or maybe not. The pink/blue standard goes beyond just color. Bows and baseballs both have their places in children’s dress. As do camouflage and ruffles. Usually, these aspects of clothing reflect the child’s interests or play activities, whether it’s “soldiers” or “princesses.” Modern studies show that children recognize color and style differences starting around the age of two-and-a-half....   [tags: Gender role, Gender, Color, Western world]

Aggressiveness in Girls

- Aggressiveness in Girls When people think of a bully, they picture an oversize older boy picking on the younger nerdy boys for their milk money, lunch, etc. It is a common stereotype because boys are more likely than girls to engage in bullying activity, especially when it comes to physical violence (Sheras, 2002, p.25).
