Video - Parent


"The question "Who am I?" is asked continually throughout our lifetimes. The development of identity is a process which begins in infancy. The child gradually comes to see himself as a separate person who has certain characteristics which are or are not valued by the family, culture, and society. If the child feels valued and loved, good self-esteem will result. In this tape we learn how children incorporate into their sense of self their sexual identity. Depending on societal and familial expectations children learn what is considered appropriate behavior for boys and girls." -Child Development Media, Inc.
