Parents all want their sons and daughters to be happy…and even successful.
They have standards and dreams for their children.
However, should parents have different hopes for their sons than daughters?
According to a post I read (where I got the inspiration to write this post) on: http://learning.blogs.nytimes.com/ a recent study found that American parents hold different expectations for their children. One example is American parents seem to want their boys smarter, and their girls Skinnier.
Lets start off with some pictures to tell the story:
Males and females are different, but equal. Therefore, we should treat all our children the same way and base goals and standards off of our children as they grow with new interests. Parents shouldn’t be worrying if their daughter is too overweight and if their son isn’t intelligent unless they are equally concerned for both children.
We cannot forget the other side of the argument either….
