Lecture 3 Slide 3  Ways of thinking. Slide 4  Just because parents act in a particular way, doesn't mean child will (example: mother being feminist, but not the daughter).  We’re getting information from our equals (peers) than our superiors (parents). Slide 5  Acting with others does change because there are other people’s wills and influence and you have to compromise. You act different when playing alone.  Just because someone is aggressive, doesn't mean they fight with everyone. It depends on the interaction (who’s in the group (1 or 2 people), expectation of the group). Slide 6  Boys grow up with boys and girls grow up with girls until we have to or until adolescence. We are isolated in our gender groups then have to get along after having ignored and not interacted with each other.  This is hard to do with power differentials, lack of experience, opposite stereotypes.  We are learning within our group how we are supposed to act. Slide 7  Infants don't show same sex preferences. This doesn't happen from birth. Eventually we split apart (around 2 years when we start getting complex and brains can differentiate, we develop skills like taking other people’s point of view as we get older).  Pressure from peers is so strong you act like strangers with opposite sex siblings.  This changes as games become more complex. Propensity to break apart becomes more and more strong. Slide 11  Same in many cultures whether they are industrial, egalitarian, etc.  Primates play with same sex toys and people. They don't have TV to look off. Slide 12  Different experience in peer and socialization (girls- intimate vs. boys-everyone).  Boys: less alienating, more friendships, less intimate, avoid people you don’t like in your group, type of play is competitive group play, hierarchy (because of big group), aggression, physical/loud (have to be loud to drown out hooliganisms of games playing), more acceptance, bullying, social role, active, doesn't matter who comes in things stay the same.  Girls: 1-2 close best friends, deep emotional bonds, imperative to cooperate and like each other, equality, quiet, aggressive in a more social than physical way, groups here are more intimate (more caring and supportive since you know each other so well)/personal/deep, more exclusive, problem solve, appeasemen
