Ideal girlhood package: Confidence, rationality, risk-taking, athleticism, independence, fearlessness

That girls should be more athletic, independent, fearless, etc. In fact, sometimes girls will be teased if they are "too girly" and are rarely teased for being a tomboy
There are less gender conformation that occurs in girls because the definition of what makes a girl is expanding
However, there are more strict guidelines for boys and they are more likely to be teased if they don't do something that is traditionally considered masculine
Childless persons tend to have higher educations than those that do have children. Due to their higher education these childless couples also tend to have professional and managerial positions.
Finances: As a result of their higher educations, higher paying jobs, and dual income, childless couples tend to have greater financial stability as compared to those with children. On average, a childless couple spends 60 percent more on entertainment, 79 percent more on food and 101 percent more on dining out. Childless couples are also more likely to have pets and those that do tend to spend a good deal more money on them.
Quality of Living: Childless persons typically eat healthier than those with children, consuming more meats, fruits, and vegetables. Happiness may also play a distinctive role in the comparison to people with children and those without. Different studies have indicated that marital happiness dramatically decreases after a child is born and does not recover until after that last child has left the house. A study at the University of Wisconsin-Madison found that working outside the home and receiving less support from extended family, as well as other factors, has increased the level of stress associated with raising children and decreased overall marital satisfaction as a result. Childless couples were more likely to take vacations, exercise, and overall live a healthier life style than those that have children
