When my 19-year-old was younger he had wanted a buddy doll. We got this doll for him and people thought we wrong for it. My son is very good with children and he has a kind and loving heart and I can promise you that, him having a buddy doll did not hurt him.
I am on round two of raising kids and I have a 20 month old and he got his first doll today. He like his baby because when you push on it stomach it says mommy and a few other things. His doll also has a bottle.
I think little boys should play with dolls. I see a lot of fathers out here stepping up and taking care of their kids when the mother cannot or will not. Things are different then they use to be back in a day. Even if both parents are in home, the responsible doesn’t just fall on the woman anymore. When purchasing this doll for my son I felt like I was being judge in the store by complete strangers, when I got to the check out I was sure to say, Don’t judge me, he is going to be a daddy someday. It not like I went to the store to buy him the doll. He seen it and wanted it so he got it. I am not saying go buy your son a doll but I am saying it is not wrong for them to play with them and nobody should be judge because they let their son have a baby doll to play with.
I am teaching my 8-year-old how to cook and do dishes. This something I did not do with my older children and didn’t really think it was important. I think every child boy or girl should learn how to cook, clean, do laundry, and any other household chores. I don’t want my child to grow up and depend on anybody to survive. Raising my child to be able to survive on his own is very important to me.
Do you let your son play with dolls? I am ok with comments of disagreement as long as you are nice about it. We all parent our children differently and I respect other parents values as I expect them to respect mine.
