Stereotypes, toys, children, New York, technology, mathematics, engineering, science,New York: While buying toys, parents and grandparents should consider the child’s interests, not their gender because limiting choice of toys according to gender can fuel stereotypes, suggests new research.

Clues to the continued dominance of men in the STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) fields — and the reason nurturing often comes more easily to women — can be found in the children’s toy department, said sociologist Elizabeth Sweet from California State University, Sacramento, US.”When we wall off the toys that develop spatial skills or are devoted to science and say, ‘These are only for boys,’ and we wall off the toys that develop empathy and verbal skills and say, ‘These are only for girls,’ it severely limits how children develop,” Sweet said in a university statement.

“If kids aren’t exposed to the kinds of toys and play that help them develop those skills, they may not be as good at them over time. But even more insidious is that it reinforces the stereotype that boys are good at science and math, and girls are not. It pushes women and girls out of that field, because they think it’s not for them,” she explained. Sweet believes that making STEM toys pink, as proposed by some toy manufacturers, would not help much.

“I think that’s the wrong approach,” Sweet said.”I think that plays up the stereotype that girls are so different that they need a special kind of STEM toys,” noted.”Research shows that different kinds of toys help children to develop different kinds of skills,” she said.”For instance, building blocks are great for building spatial skills. Playing with dolls is really good for developing language skills and nurturing abilities. All of those skills are essential for a fully functioning human,” Sweet pointed out.

Best tips to find a girlfriend

Published

on

Hundreds of articles have been written about this, but this topic still remains relevant. One of the most common complexes of insecure men is the stereotype that a beautiful girl is meant to be with someone else but not him. Hence the further delusions at the sight of every beauty encountered. We come up with excuses for ourselves: “she has a boyfriend, she is in a hurry, not today, there is no point in approaching, I will seem like a moron, not my level.” We made a list of tips that will help you find a girlfriend.

  1. Don’t stay at home

Remember once and for all, by sitting with a bowl of chips, and a bottle of beer in front of a computer screen, you will never find a girl! It is unlikely that there is a slim, graceful, full-bosomed, and sleek dream girl who walks around the block and knocks on the door to the home-losers. If she’s not a postman, of course. What to do? Go outside. Yes, right now. For the beginners, it is better not to meet girls just on the streets, visit some hobby clubs and other popular among girl’s places.

  1. Learn to enjoy being alone

If you are alone now, this doesn’t mean that you should completely forget about yourself. You still have to dress well and beautifully, or how will she notice you? Be self-sufficient, self-confident, plus your loneliness should not oppress you; otherwise, you will become miserable. To make others feel good with you, let yourself be good. It is important to begin with yourself.

  1. Practice your skills 

If you want to find yourself a good, beautiful girl, then one of your main goals is to communicate with a large number of females. You must constantly practice and sharpen your communication skills. You should do it regularly and not once a month, or there will be no sense in those pieces of training at all. Especially if you search younger women for older men.

  1. Failures only make you stronger

Most men, in principle, are afraid to go up to the girl and start a conversation. They are afraid of being rejected. And although it doesn’t hurt and doesn’t make our sky to collapse, fear remains. So come on, don’t be afraid to ask her for the phone number. It doesn’t matter if you get a refusal or consent. Repeat this as many times as you need to get rid of fear. You get stronger every time.

  1. Stop looking for excuses.

All these phrases like “She is very beautiful, she probably has hundreds of people like me”, “She looks like she already has a boyfriend,” “She won’t like me,” “I guess I’m not her type,” “Now is not the best moment to talk, she is busy with something” are a complete nonsense. Stop looking for excuses for your fear and failures. Forget about them and your excuses. Act now. You should move only forward!

  1. Enjoy the process

No need to take everything too seriously. This is just a search for a girl, not a global catastrophe for all of humanity. If you relate to the whole process with ease, then there is a better chance that you are guaranteed success. After all, the whole process of seduction is a pleasure.

  1. Be yourself.

No need to try to please the girl completely lose herself. For example, if she is a vegetarian, don’t say that you are too if you are not. If she tells you stupid and unfunny jokes, then you don’t have to laugh. If she says complete nonsense, then don’t be afraid to tell her that you don’t understand and like her because of that.

  1. Pay attention to your appearance.

If you think that only men value women first in appearance, then you are deeply mistaken. Women pay attention to your figure, hands, shoes, hairstyle, clothing style. For them, this first impression is as important as for us. Therefore, you must be well-groomed, you must take care of yourself, go to the gym, keep yourself in shape. Pay attention to your clothes. Be stylish and choose the things that suit you. This will give you even more confidence, which means attractiveness in her eyes.
