I personally do not see anything wrong with a 3 and 4 year old boy playing with a baby doll and a little girl playing with hot wheels cars!! I recently posted on my facebook that my boys were playing with my daughters dolls today more than their toys and their step mother didn't like that. what is your opinion, do you take into account the gender of your child when it comes to toys you let them play with?Answer Question

Nothing wrong at all. And there step mom didn't like it? Interesting. First, how very wonderful you have her as a friend on FB. Truthfully, if I had an ex and he was remarried - I'm not sure how much I would want her on my wall or reading my stuff. That is very mature of you. Not so mature of her to comment on your wall that she disagrees with basically amounts to a parenting issue. I know me. This would rub me the wrong way. I would not start WWIII but at the same time I would find a graceful way of starting a conversation about gender identity from point of view...and that my hope is my children will have similar ways of thinking about gender that I do. While I respect her opinion - it would bother me the messages that my children have in her home. I guess on one hand I could be thankful I am aware of how she thinks. This way I can have honest discussions with my children about my views and how their SM may

I hope the sm isn't going to have a lot of influence on their upbringing. You may want to limit what knowledge you share with her. Maybe start a different FB sight for your friends? I had to do that. Now they don't have any idea what goes on except what I want them to know! LOL As far ask the kids? They sound like healthy boys. Nothing to worry about. You are doing a wonderful job! There is always going to be someone telling you what you should or shouldn't do. Acknowledge their feelings and thank them. Don't respond or explain because they've already made up their minds! I know....LOL Hope this helps! Happy New Years!
