Such theories include that “boys need a competitive and confrontational learning environment, while girls can only succeed if they work cooperatively and are not placed under stress” (Sherwin). However, this theory can be proved wrong due to the fact that women cope better with stress than men do, which is one of the main reasons why women tend to outlive men (Barber). This theory also provides a clear example of how gender stereotypes are being forced into the minds of boys and girls in a school setting. If a school starts to separate boys and girls from each other due to such theories, girls will start to make excuses for their poor test scores, etc. by saying that they were “too stressed out” to do well on a homework assignment, test, quiz, etc.
I remember being in kindergarten, there was this one kid that took out his torn blanket during nap time. Everybody use to laugh at him, which probably caused a large amount of self-consciousness. Next, the social class of a child can affect the way they interact with fellow classmates and teachers. At times, kids would act out in front of the whole class for attention. This is sometimes cause by the child being ignore by a sibling or parent.
2. The major issue with dirty dancing/grinding in middle schools and high schools is that parents, administrators, and other affiliates are not approving of the sexually interactive movements between the kids. This “dirty dancing” is defined as a style of intimate, close dancing between two partners. This issue has grown to a much larger definition due to the new age of teens who are evolving into what parents consider to be crude and unethical in many things that they do, one being “dirty dancing”. The ethical and moral issues are broad in scope due to the partial acceptance of this new culture of kids.
[Page Break]Imagine a daycare class room for one and two year olds filled with toys that they are interested in along with peers that are their age. Social and emotional development can be affected by different environments and the children’s overall development. Based on the movie “Toddlers: Social and Emotional Development,” it referred to toddlers that were between the ages of one and two years. So take a young girl who is a toddler and it is her first day being dropped off in the daycare class room by her mother, but usually it’s her father that drops her off. There are many factors that can cause this young toddler to become anti-social and very emotional.
Most people consider it as “improper” or “broken” English. The stereotypes for African Americans adolescents are that they get arrested, commit crimes, get pregnant young, and drop out of school. Most people doubt they will succeed in life. Most of these assumptions are because of the way they speak. People assume they are uneducated, so they think they can trick them out of things, similar to the way they treated Amy Tan’s mother.
Principally, single sex schools are beneficial for the students that attend them because they create a better learning environment. At a certain point in time the opposite sex becomes a distraction to the natural learning environment and disrupts the flow of a class as well as life in school. Rosalind Rosenberg, a Stanford graduate with a BA and PHD had documented that male traditions, which had initially isolated women in many colleges and universities, began to fade and the modem sexual revolution struck American campuses. The efforts of the university administrators to impose a system of separate sexual spheres on student social life were largely futile. The youth of the teens and twenties rejected the rigid constraints of Victorian society and the young women cut their hair, threw away their corsets, shortened their skirts, danced all night, and even Eliza Mosher could not do much about it (Rosenberg).
During the time Mrs. Eliot spent explaining to the children that people with blue eyes were better than brown eyed people almost immediately was it noticeable that the children were impacted and without a doubt in their minds they were being discriminated against just for the color of their eyes. I think the children’s facial expressions were more than obvious, they did not like what was about to happen. Mrs. Eliot really “divided” the class by eye color and she also made it be felt in many forms (Peters, 1968). When Mrs. Eliot began discriminating against brown eyed people or better said children she really made them feel like they were not a part of society so to speak, they were like the outcast of the entire class. Many of the students that were discriminated against seemed to seclude themselves from the rest of the class and other brown eyed people.
And if you don’t have all of these or most of these you are generally considered an outcast. Society often looks down on people of a low social status, these people of the low social status usually do things out of the ordinary to try and belong with society even if they cannot afford to do so. These ideas of belonging are represented in the movie through a couple of important scenes one of these scenes is Cady Herring had made two new friends: Damian and Janis, Damian and Janis aren’t ranked very high on the school popularity social status. As Cady goes to sit the table with Damian and Janis the popular girls known as the ‘plastics’, sitting on a table away from Damian and Janis, speak to her. The tables being separated demonstrate the difference between the social ranks.
TeensHealth online magazine says, “Like anyone who's being bullied, people who are sexually bullied or harassed can feel a great deal of emotional stress if the situation continues without relief” (“Sexual…Bullying” 1). These comments can come in many forms, such as inappropriate jokes, word manipulation, threats, and name-calling (“Types…Harassment”). Studies were done to test the frequency of everyday sexual comments experienced by college students. These studies concluded more women were impacted by sexual comments than men, but both had an emotional reaction (Swim et al.). Society is so used to these offensive comments that most people do not think of sexual harassment when they hear one, or when one rolls off their tongue.
Jealousy is a familiar experience in human relationships. Jealousy is often referred to as “The Green-Eyed Monster”. Kids experience jealousy at young as the age of nine months. Children that are a part of a large family sometime feel that their parents favor one child over the other. Out of my five children, the younger three feel like I show favoritism towards the older two children.
