Gender is a number of characters define femininity and masculinity. It is quite often referenced as sex (male, female, boy, girl) and is defined by societal norms. Gender roles have a significant impact upon child developed as well as behavioral patterns from infancy through adulthood (Bee & Boyd, 2010). Gender identity is known as the personal conception of whether an individual defines his or her self as male or female, both or neither. Gender stability was introduced by Kohlberg and is an understanding of gender labeling such as hair length, the stability of gender such as growing up fathers. Gender consistency references gender forever remaining the same.
Gender role development is from childhood and continues to develop throughout life. They usually begin at approximately 9-10 months of age and regarding gender identity (telling who is male an female by length of hair and clothing), to gender stability at the age of 4 where children begin to understand males become fathers and females become mothers, through gender consistency where children understand this is a never ending change in life (gender always remains the same).
When children begin to understand gender is forever permanent they typically look for ways to behave based upon their gender. Many children enter the cross gender phase because they find themselves overanalyzing gender and the societal norms as related. This typically happens between the ages of five to seven years old. Regularly, children learn and adopt gender roles that are prevalent in their homes. From these norms, children adopt morals that are often reinforced within their own lifestyles as adults and young teenagers.
