Environmental Influences on Gender Typing

  • Social Learning Theory

    • Gender typing results from

      • imitation of same-sex models and reinforcement for this behavior


Parental Behavior

  • On average, differences in parental treatment of boys and girls are not large

  • Does not mean that parental behavior is unimportant because:

    • Younger children receive more direct training in gender roles than older children

    • Some parents probably practice differential treatment more intensely than others




  • Parents reinforce independence in boys (e.g., guns, cars, tools, footballs)

    • React more positively when boys demand attention, run and climb, or try to take toys from others

  • Parents reinforce closeness/dependency in girls

    • More likely to direct play activities, provide help, encourage participation in household tasks, and refer to emotions
