Moreover, questionnaires have been delivered to children and interviews have been conducted with their educators, parents and siblings. Children were also involved in role games (e.g. “My family” game) enabling them to solve a problem situation with simulated gender roles as well as engaged in the analysis of the poems and tales that they have learned.
