Kayla Swinson Soc. 101.103 09/30/18 Section 5.1 Question #2 2. Explain why it’s important to conduct research using both male and female participants. What sociological topics might show gender differences? Provide some examples to illustrate your ideas. -It is important to conduct research using both female and male participants because there oftentimes physical and psychological differences between gender. There are also cultural difference between men and women. Some studies would need to have both men and women participate because without the diversity the study would be gender biased. Some topics that would show gender differences would be the difference in aggression between genders, parenting styles, and the amount of affection a person shows. An example of a study that would require both genders would be a experiment to show what toys are popular among children today. Girls are taught to play with dolls, play houses and pink things. Whereas boys are taught to play with trucks, cars, and blue things. If the study was just to take data from one gender, it would not be accurate because it wouldn’t represent all children. Section 5.3 Question #5 & #6 5. Do you think it is important that parents discuss gender roles with their young children, or is gender a topic better left for later? How do parents consider gender norms when

buying their children books, movies, and toys? How do you believe they should consider it? -I do not think it is important to discuss gender roles to young kids. I believe that gender isn’t something that needs to be taught. I feel that it is better for parents to talk about gender with their children when they are older and able to make smart decisions on their own. Parents buy books, toys, and movies based on what gender their child is and what the norms are for that gender. I feel that parents should just simply buy what their child is interested in rather than forcing social norms into their child’s brain. 6. Based on your observations, when are adolescents more likely to listen to their parents or to their peer groups when making decisions? What types of dilemmas lend themselves toward one social agent over another?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
