Physical, verbal, relational) Media violence can increase hostile thoughts, emotions, and behavior *Gender Stereotypes* by age 3-4 they know for sure Associations with roles, toys, clothing, behavior, etc. Genetics: (evolutionary perspective) Males were largely oriented toward competing for mates (dominance) Females were largely oriented toward rearing children (intimacy) Environmental- family, teachers, peers and how they interact differently with boys/girls based on gender Social Learning theory preschoolers acquire gender-typed responses through modeling and reinforcement Cognitive-Development theory self-perceptions come from behavior, permanence of sex helps to shape gender-role development Parents have the ability to limit Gender stereotyping (limiting traditional roles with non-traditional alternatives) Child Rearing Styles: Authoritative = the most successful approach, high acceptance and involvement, self-control techniques and high self-esteem Authoritarian = low acceptance and involvement with high parental control.
