Gender Stereotypes: How to Raise Children Not Limited By Their Gender


Pleasant Hill - Main University Campus 100 Ellinwood Way
Pleasant Hill, CA 94523-4817

October 29, 2016 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM

As developmental science has shown, there are few differences between boys and girls when they are born, but as children grow they are impacted by gender stereotypes that are imposed upon them. The gender divide, which is perpetuated by a child’s parents, relatives, teachers, and peers, as well as the culture and media that surround him or her, limits the potential of both girls and boys. For girl, stereotypes can erode self-esteem, damaging the formation of a healthy body image, and undercut self confidence in math and science. For boys, stereotypes can reinforce aggressive tendencies and prevent the learning of empathy. In this talk, we will discuss steps that parents can take to help raise children whose potential isn’t limited by gender.

This event is sponsored by Continuing Education at JFK University and is eligible for CEU credits.
