(Critical) This program discusses instances and consequences of stereotyped sex role development. The traditional role expectations of male and female children are compared, and two examples of nontraditional growing environments are depicted. The concept of androgeny is advocated; however, there is no consideration of potential adjustment problems faced by an androgenous individual. The issue is assessed only from the viewpoint of urban, American culture and the discussionis elementary.
