Gender Typed Play : A Very Apparent Aspect Of Preschool Aged Children 's Play Experiences

- Gender-typed play is a very apparent aspect of preschool aged children’s play experiences (Goble, Martin, Hanish, & Fabes, 2012). Research indicates that female children prefer to play with feminine items, and male children prefer to play with masculine items (Goble et al., 2012). It is also evident that children prefer to play with peers of the same-sex (Fabes, Martin, & Hanish, 2003). This could potentially contribute to why research tends to show the same patterns in gender-typed play. However, not every research study has shown this, so what, then, accounts for the variability that can be seen within these preferences in pre-school aged children, and why is this trend so apparent in this...   [tags: Gender, Grammatical gender, Gender-neutral pronoun]
