HOME LINK: Today in Tech, we talked about how our children encounter all kinds of stereotypes in the media. We need to consider that they are not always aware of what they're seeing? Gender stereotypes are oversimplified ideas about how women and men are or should be. These ideas or beliefs are often part of our culture, and it can be easy for any of us to be influenced by them. They can come from many places, including the people in our lives, like our family, friends, and community. They also often come from the digital media that we see online, such as from YouTube, Netflix, online magazines, music, and social media. Think about your experiences online. What examples of gender stereotypes have you seen or heard? It could be a character in a show, something from a music video, or even a message someone posted. We can help our children to notice gender stereotypes as they occur and to think critically about how gender stereotypes can affect the ways they view themselves and others.
