In addition to biological maturation, children develop within a set of gender-specific social and behavioral norms embedded in family structure, natural play patterns, close friendships, and the teeming social jungle of school life. The gender roles encountered in childhood play a large part in shaping an individual's self-concept and influence the way he or she forms relationships later on in life. In general, the roles of males and females are not equally valued; the active, practical, and hardy role of men is considered more important than the passive, caretaking responsibility associated with women.
