To moms of Toddler Boys: Would you be OK with it if your toddler son loves DORA THE EXPLORER and only wants to watch that?

I guess my son loves Dora because I also have a daughter that loves Dora too and so they both watch it together. My DH has a problem with this. Do any of you have sons that adore Dora as well?

  • Why would it be a problem, other than it's an annoying show, your DH needs to wash his mangina if he has issues with it, other than it's just an annoying as hell show lol

  • My son (3 1/2) loves Dora & Diego. He learns so much from those shows.

  • My son watches Dora I don't think there's anything wrong with it, I explain to him Dora is a Girl and Diego is a boy and that he is a boy, he doesn't act girly because of it so whats the problem.

  • My son watched The Big Comfy Couch. He also loved Blue from Blue's Clue's..she is a girl. He even loved Titanic when he was three. The girl of all girl movies. I really wouldn't care at all.

  • What exacly is your husband's issue? Should your daughter not watch Bob the Builder? I think that your husband has some genuine issues with gender roles that you both need to work on.

  • kids don't see sex/gender the way we do. They see toys and fun. Boys watching a show hosted by a girl isn't going to make him gay! Nor is playing with dolls. It's just play.
