Transcript of Do Parents have different Hopes and Standards For Their Sons

Do Parents have different Hopes and

Standards for their Sons Than Their Daughters?
If you have siblings, younger or older, brother or sister; you may have noticed different standards, different expectations from your parents from each child. This happens to most families, where they have different hopes for their son(s) or daughter(s), usually not their age than more of gender. In the following paragraphs, I’ll tell you the differences between the two, opinions from parents, and from their kids or other children that will answer me. I’ll bring in the evidence and claims to support, and counter claims. Most will be facts, some might be opinions. Facts that I’ll settle on are the what parents expect from their children, what parents are more likely to do for their son or daughter, and why parents actually do this.

What parents expect from their children, what parents are more likely to do for their son or daughter, and why parents do this were a few facts that I settled on. Though parents want different things from each of their children doesn’t mean they favour more over the other. It’s natural for this to happen in families, and it’s natural for their kids to hate it. Most kids nowadays wish for both, to be pretty, or handsome; and smart to exceed at what they want. Their parents want the same, even if they show it more towards your brother or sister more. Research and study can’t hold parents back, and it shouldn’t for you either. So tell me, what do you want to do? What do you wish to exceed at? Prove everyone wrong, and be that girl who is extremely smart and get’s the job she wants, yet still be beautiful; and be that boy where you can be handsome, and yet still be smart where you get that job you wished for, be both.

Thank you!
What Parents Expect From their Children
The usual standards that kids are put in from their parents are from their genders, female or male. Parents usually, always want the best for their kids, whether if it’s grades or performance levels in another genre, such as sports or, as one of the subjects I’m touching upon; beauty. Though, some of this goes unintended by the parent.
Studies show that parents are more usually asked queries if their son(s) is gifted, than their daughter; to a 25:10. Even though, it’s been proven that girls are about 11 percent more likely to be more gifted program. Compared to the question parents also ask queries, is their daughter overweight, to a 17:10. Though it’s a 9 percent more likely for the son to be overweight. Which only states that most parents want their daughter to be skinnier, and their son to be smarter. Then again, with our new forming and changing society and it’s standards for appearance and weight on women; it’s not surprising how parents were to worry how their daughter measured up to society’s standards. Which would be why the 17:10 ratio would make somewhat sense on the matter.

Why parents actually do this.
Most parents intend to put up hopes and standards for their children. Though there are some parents that are more laid back “and wish only for all their children to be happy in life.” Whether if it’s what they want or not. Or those rare parents who honestly don’t care. Some reasons why daughters might have stricter rules is because of the one in three girls around the world, experience some sort of violence; compared to boys. Parents may believe that their sons will experience less violence, even though it’s not proven. Even though it might sometimes be okay for there to be standards, they should be equal between each child, and not one more than the other.

It’s not as if parents don’t want their daughter to be smart or their son to be in shape; but their more focused on the opposite. For example, most parents are most likely to add anything that relates to ‘smart’ after ‘Is my son a’ such as genius. Even at a young age, it’s been proven for girls to have a more extreme vocabulary compared to boys. Yet even so, parents look towards the boys for higher education and braininess than from the females.
What parents are more likely to do for their son or daughter.
Taking the information from before, where the son is looked upon to be smart while the girl pretty and skinny; parents take this and apply it against their own children. Parents are often giving their son an allowance than their daughter. Ranking at a 22% vs. 19%, for boys vs. girls. With an 67% vs. 59% of boys and girls saying they get a allowance from their parents. When more girls say that they want to know about managing money and creating a budget.

Why parents shouldn’t make standards for their children.

Though it’s okay for some standards to be put in form, it can make complicated matters within their children’s lives. Such as one child might think they might be more inferior to their younger/older sibling. Stress may also be forced onto a child for making them feel insecure or they don’t have high enough grades on the report card. All of which can be a downfall onto their lives. It’s okay to set standards, just not extreme high ones, and not gender biased.
