Today we talk about the different pressures (or perceived pressures) society places on boys and girls. Do you think children are dealing with opportunities or more limitations than they were decades ago? Chat with us today to see what other parents have to say!

  • What kind of pressures do you think were on you as a child?
  • Is there anything you hope your child does or becomes as she grows older?
  • What kind of pressure do you think society places on girls? On boys?
  • Do you think adding boys to Take Our Daughters to Work Day was a good idea? Why or why not?
  • Do you think children today have too many expectations placed on them, or not enough?
  • How do you keep your own wants and dreams for your children from becoming pressure on them?
