BOTTON, Andressa; CUNICO, Sabrina Daiana; BARCINSKI, Mariana  e  STREY, Marlene Neves. The parental roles in families: analyzing transgenerational and gender aspects. Pensando fam. [online]. 2015, vol.19, n.2, pp. 43-56. ISSN 1679-494X.

In contemporaneity, gender stereotyping is still present in nuclear families, providing sexists and patriarchal characteristics to the relationship between men and women. We aimed to analyze how the exercise of fatherhood and motherhood are influenced by those stereotypes, as well as understand the practice of parenting roles in the family background according to gender aspects. Therefore, we conducted a literature review using scientific materials about the research topic, using the perspective of post-structuralist gender studies for the analysis and the discussion. We found that contemporary's nucleus families support relations that break down traditional standards of gendering, while traditional and stereotyped values on suitable social roles to men and women are kept. Consequently, the presence of gender stereotypes on boys and girl’s education creates a regression in the non-sexist educational practicing and, also, on consolidation of a fair and equitable society to men and women.
