My 9 yr old son likes to play with his sister's Barbies and babies.
Does anyone else have a son who likes these things?? Should I be concerned?? My son and his 6 yr old sister play very well together (most of the time!), and they like to play together. They like to play school where they are both teachers taking care of their classes; they like to play store and make pictures and crafts to sell; they like to play "house" with my dd's dolls--they play as realistic as they can. And also they like to play pretend with her Barbies. Sometimes they line up the Barbies and play a school scenario, or they give them baths in the sink. Tonight they were playing with them out on our front porch, just pretending.
My son is not your typical "all boy"--he's not really into sports, could really care less, and is not very good if he tries them. He's not aggressive and rough-and-tumble like most boys his age. He's much more thoughful and insightful and detail oriented. He's quiet and content and likes to play by himself and do his own thing. Now, he does like his cars VERY much and has many, many of them. He likes to design parking lots with sidewalk chalk and play with his cars. He likes to draw very detailed pictures/diagrams of parking lots, buildings, houses, churches, schools, classrooms, etc. He also loves music and is doing very well at piano lessons.
I just kind of feel that he is who he is, and that he's going to grow up just fine.....but my husband is somewhat concerned about him playing with dolls.
What do you think?????????
