Please don't think I'm being a jerk or anything. My question is I have a wonderful 6 year old son. Sometimes I just think he is to sensitive. For example he cries alot if we joke around together. He also says things like oh my goodnesss. Which he proabley gets from me. Like the other day he's like mommy I can't wait to see the purse you bought online . He's so sweet about it I think he just excited for me because I don't treat myself much. Another example he wants this juice maker set at the store and It's for girls? I just don't want him to get teased when he gets older. He does also acts like a boy alot too. He loves videogames,wrestling with dad when he's home. I just worry because he's with me alot and he's proabley sensitive because of me. My husband is never around he's in the navy. How can I kind of make him a little bit tougher etc...... Again Please don't think I don't want him to be himself . Any tips

A six year old is asexual. There really is no difference between boys and girls at this age, adults just treat boys and girls differently. Why is the juice maker only for girls? I really wouldn't read to much into his sweetness, I would enjoy it. Soon enough his going to get a large dose of testosterone and he'll need that kindness to level him off.
