Part I: Marriage and Family Journal (Entry #3)

How were you socialized into your gender role? That is, how did you learn that you were to act in certain ways because you were a girl or because you were a boy? Do you recall your parents telling you some of these expectations? For example, “Big boys don’t cry,” or “Girls don’t play with GI Joe and army toys, they play with dolls.” Did your friends influence you to behave in certain ways because of your gender? Did teachers or relatives play a role in teaching you your gender role either by example or in words? If you have children, do you expect to pass on these same gender roles or do you think you will modify the gender roles you were taught? How and why?
