    What about other factors, such as hormones and simply personality? Surely these come into play as well? There are just so many aspects of life (apart from family and social influences) that determine the ways in which a particular gender 'behaves'. I dunno - maybe it is for a reason???

    My DH is the SAHP during the day while I work full time.

    They do a lot of rough and tumble (wresting, jumping on the bed etc), playing at the park and DS is very much into cars, trucks and blocks. Yep, typical "boy stuff".

    I have, and will continue to provide DS with more rounded options in relation to play. I bought him a doll and stroller earlier in the year and he didn't take as much of a shine to them as I would have liked, but it's there for him when he wants it. He is also getting a play kitchen and wooden food/utensils to play with for Xmas, which I think he will love.

    There is no way I'll be discouraging my DS from wanting to play with any toy he chooses - pink, purple, sparkly - no worries! And considering he is an only child who may never have a sister, I will be more than happy to engage in activities with him which some may think are traditionally more of a mother/daughter thing.
