Would you be worried if a child would picked their toys on the shelves not matching their gender?

It would be so strange if you happened to have a son then suddenly points onto a variety of dolls on the shelves and insisted that he want's one. Then conversely a daughter who wants to have a toy gun for christmas and plays it with boys. I would just wonder how you would be reacting to this.

Honestly, I did had the urge to also play with girl's toys before and it was just fine. Although those toys weren't actually meant for us but for our sister. We did played with those miniature plates and cups that actually looked like the real thing. Poured real coffee on them and took a sip. It was fun and we didn't even managed to think that it's a play thing only for girls. We haven't the slightest thought that we're playing these stuffs because we'll grow up as gays.. haha.. :D.

I still believed that every child has a certain period in their lives where the development depends on how they would be properly nurtured by their parents. Comparable to a food, it's not all the time that you would always give them bread to eat because for sure they would grow up eating bread only. They wouldn't know how other foods would taste, right? And if it so happened that they did tasted a different one when they've grown old, it would be the culprit on having a mixed personality. So as the holy scriptures always say: " Train up a child in a way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it " Proverbs 22:6.

Any opinions on this? Will you allow your kids or any child to play toys not designed for their gender? I know you were a child before and could easily relate to this. Thanks a lot for sharing people.

My daughter used to love collecting toy guns and it didn't bother me maybe because her Dad and my family is in the military force. She also loves cars. I did talked to her that those toys are mainly for boys. I think it just depends on how the parents explained it to their children Sir Mario. Reply

My daughter has a Bumblebee toy. She's a fan of the Transformers and her favorite is Bumblebee. She's a self-proclaimed Princess. She's a girly girl who loves dainty accessories but has air, land and sea toy vehicles. I also gave her gender-neutral toys such as balls, play dough, and blocks.
I believe that toys will not dictate her future and that she can be whoever she wants to be. A girl with toy cars can be a race car driver and a boy who plays with toy cooking utensils can be a chef when they grow up, right?
And oh, I used to play with lead and a soldering iron when I was a kid, now... Wala lang, haha!!!!
