There is no doubt that children learn gender roles, and they will typically learn them in ways that are very subtle. The grandfather in this video watches as his daughter does all of the work around the house as her husband sits and watches television as if this is not his job or his family. Her now elderly father reflects on the fact that he watched his daughter play house growing up, and yet he never told her that it was not her job to do it all alone.
The video makes some interesting points about how people learn gender, and about how the older generation may end up feeling remorse about their role in shaping what happens to the younger generation with regards to gender.
