Studies explore gender identity and children - Thriving …

Dramatic transformations in women’s and men’s roles inside and outside of the family have occurred during the last half century in most of the industrialized world. The traditional image of the two-parent heterosexual family with the father serving as the provider and the mother as the homemaker is no longer the norm in many industrialized countries. Instead, most mothers pursue jobs outside of the home and many fathers are involved in childcare. In addition, many children are raised by single parents and by lesbian/gay parents. Despite these role changes, there remain relatively few truly egalitarian parenting arrangements. Also, studies suggest that parents with gender-egalitarian attitudes may nonetheless act differently with daughters and sons.12 Longitudinal studies suggest that parents’ treatment of sons and daughters may have an influence on some aspects of their gender development.3,6

The environmental factors include the gender stereotypes and identity roles.

Also according to a socialization explanation, men are socialized to be less expressive, and this creates particular intrapsychic conflicts for men that lead to symptoms of depression and anxiety (Zamarripa, Wampold & Gregory, 2003). Indeed, studies have found that gender role conflict in men is negatively related to mental health.
