Original Essay


In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph:

Many different facets shape gender roles during the development of a child into adolescence. From parenting styles to media influences, children learn by observation and are swayed by the plethora or lack of adults in their lives. This control is not only important for the healthy development of their social and emotional well-being, but also for the development of their cognitions and memory in difficult situations (Liben & Signorella, 1993). Though all humans have the ability to make their own decisions, they are haunted and pressured by the influence of others around them, others who are hierarchically above them, or others who are important.
