I've just sent this article to DP, as I've been thinking a lot lately about how he plays with DS. They tend to do construction type things, or sports based things, and DP does very little imaginative/ traditionally more feminine play with him. I think it's really cementing for DS what is 'real' boy's play and it worries me. It's not DP's fault, he just plays what he likes and is comfortable playing. Was interested in how other dads play with their sons- is it predominantly more 'masculine' activities or is your other half more in touch with his inner tea party hostess?
