Bulgarian Comparative Education Society, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the Bulgarian Comparative Education Society (10th, Kyustendil, Bulgaria, Jun 12-15, 2012)
Through the influences of our social environment, both boys and girls learn their sexual norms, specific rules and values from the early childhood. Hence, children grow up in the world of distinct sexual duality. In their efforts to act according to their sexual stereotypes, children adopt these widespread stereotyped conceptions in developing their self-image. This includes behaviour, emotions, and the role that each child connects with his/her own self - all in accordance with the accepted male and female image. In this comparative study, we tried to determine how fourteen-year-old schoolboys and schoolgirls in Slovene, Austrian and Croatian elementary schools evaluated the spheres of free time activities, domestic chores and schoolwork, and personal traits, characteristics and conduct. This study provides relevant information about the image of schoolboys and schoolgirls in the seventh grade, and shows the answers given by the girls are closely related to the sexual tendency of self-image and the image of the opposite sex.
