What does a boy need to grow up a real man, strong and courageous? Many parents are just sure that they are typewriters or pistols, but not a doll or a kitchen. Is it really? Let’s try today to figure it out!
We have a boy growing
In the modern world everywhere there is a division into girls and boys. And different stereotypes lead to persistent and tough attitudes on the part of parents.
Of course, a boy who grows up as a protector, brave and courageous is great, but this is not the only function or role that a man performs.
After all, a woman sometimes wants so much that her husband regrets or feels sympathy, and sometimes she can simply prepare an evening dinner. If you take toys for boys and girls and combine them into one fascinating game, then what’s wrong with that? It does not matter what sex the toy belongs to, the main thing is that it corresponds to the age of the baby.
The need for various toys
Many parents of boys can be frightened by the desire of their child to dolls or strollers. They are trying in every way to prevent such games, and children are trying to adapt to what their parents want. Therefore, the boys begin to play with purely male toys, and the girls rock the children, prepare food or iron their clothes.
It seems to me that the boy’s interest in children’s dishes or strollers will not make him a soft and sensitive girl, and girls with cars and pistols will not necessarily become boys. At a very early age, boys need to buy various games, taking into account their desires. Even if it be baby dolls or strollers.
Our favorite toys
Our son really liked and still likes the strollers in which they roll dolls. But my husband did not allow me to buy this toy for him, so when he comes to the garden, he comes off in full. Many times I noticed him rolling a pram, but he no longer viewed it as a place for dolls, but simply as a vehicle with which to run around with someone to race.
At the same time, my niece, who is already 5.5 years old, ordered me a radio control machine for the New Year. That was her dream. One time a boy brought such a typewriter to their garden and they drove around the pins. So the other children have already gone to eat and sleep, and Sonya was still standing and driving the machine.
Some parents are very opposed to seeing the doll in the hands of their son, but at the same time they buy him various characters from cartoons, which are also essentially dolls. Here it is worth thinking no longer about whether this doll is for a girl or for a boy, but what information does she carry. In the period of the formation of the child’s psyche, such toys that are both human and animal will not be very useful. Since Kids try to be like their favorite characters, and these are not very good examples.
I see nothing wrong with the fact that my son has a favorite soft toy, with which he practically does not part. He went to the kindergarten with her, sometimes he goes to the clinic. He feels in her a part of the house, protection and support in difficult situations for him.
Older boys can also be offered sewing kits or small cooking classes. This is not only the development of fine motor skills, but also the ability to take care of themselves in a more adult age (for example, to sew a button or to cook an omelette).
Toys for boys
Now in our collection a lot of especially men’s toys.
On the shelves of their stores nemerenoe quantity. These are radio control cars, retro car models, airplanes, boats, trains, etc.
Choose the child’s age absolutely no difficulty.
For example, cars with a body are perfect for both one year old and five year olds. With them, they will transport animals, designer parts or sand on the beach.
We have a car track, which is interesting not only for the son, but also for the father. Here they arrange races of cars, as well as trains on batteries, which run perfectly in a circle. But for three years we decided to donate him a railway.
I am not very good at different pistols, machine guns or swords. It seems to me that aggressiveness is born in a child. Although the question is probably not what to play, but how to play. Therefore, if the purpose of the weapon is correctly explained to the child, then this may not lead to the development of some negative qualities.
They can be bought starting from one year old and up to 12-14 years old. The little boy will only build a tower of blocks or a farm, but an older child will be able to design helicopters or special equipment.
5) Tool kits.
The assortment of toys for boys is simply huge, but when choosing one or another object, you should not make rigid distinctions between toys based on gender. No need to build stereotypes in the child’s mind, because besides you, there are many well-wishers who will hammer the head of the child, what they think is right and what is not.
