Gender Equality Explained By Children
Watch this video:
One time in the daycare all we had were boys, no girls. During an interview, a mother, of a 14-month girl asked if I had any other girls for her little to play with? The answer was straight to the point, which involved asking the question of a 3-year-old.
"Are you a boy or a girl?"
The answer was simple.
"I am a boy"
Then I asked,
"What does that mean"
He shrugged his shoulders and went back to the kitchen to play bakery.
We don't know how to act as a boy or a girl we just like the things we do because of our environmental upbringing or because of natural talents. People need people fathers and mothers, girls and boys, as we come together with one's talents and characteristics we complement each other.
Parents have many talents that help children know that each person in the family is important girl and boys have different innate talents and are taught by example, many times it helps children to identify their best selves. One key factor is that women can bear children, but when two come together as equal partners they can do anything together, the world is full of people that inspire others. A parent's example is a child's future. Children need both parents to help them understand the world. Parents need to work as equal partners in all things, but at times one gender may have a better fit for different scenarios.
Parents provide nutrition, shelter, clothing, health, and safety for our children but we also need to provide mental support. Because people need people fathers and mothers, girls and boys, as we come together with one's talents and characteristics we complement each other. Parents are to help children identify their best selves. Children need both parents to help them understand the world. Parents need to work as equal partners in all things, but at times one may be better with different scenarios.
When parents/caregivers guide a child it conveys fundamental values, such as a sport. Some may think it is only for boys, however, to teach a child human decency. We must teach children may do anything they want, play football, dance, etc... We can be competitive and have a good time. As the example above we don't know how to act as a boy or a girl we just like the things we do because of our environmental upbringing or because of natural talents. Many men or women can teach love and patience. When two come together to teach a child kindness, loving tones, and patience to complement the idea of women and men. It's a parent's goal to teach children about themselves, others, and the world around them.
Good Parenting begins in the home
According to author Laurence Steinberg in his book, he states, "One of the most encouraging findings from research on childhood development is that the fundamentals of good parenting are the same regardless of whether your child is male or female, six or sixteen, an only child, a twin or a child with multiples sibling." In a home values must to taught, rules to be followed, trust to be achieved, everyone to feel valued as an individual. Parenting is one of the hardest things to do, especially when a child makes bad choices mother and father that come together to teach them is necessary for a well-rounded child, working as equals. Teaching lessons in the home can be done by both parents, in fact when lessons are researched by the child they can teach the lesson to the family. This demonstrates how the family can work as a team for each other and not against.

Then again gender does matter as David A. Bednar, states “Each gender has a unique combination of spiritual, physical, mental, and emotional capacities we need both males and females they are needed to implement the plan of happiness when people follow the guidelines, to help one another as equal partners, to be loving and kind."
The Primary difference between women and man is that a woman is already ready to primarily be responsible for nurture their children. According to Psychology Today, “women have the biological need to nurture, even when she isn’t a mom. This natural gift starts before motherhood. And during pregnancy, a woman will naturally adapt quickly to motherhood as soon as the little embryo is growing within her from her husband’s love, the beginning of a new family with shared values and traditions. Each gender does have different qualities, and natural enate gifts to share.
