Toys for boys and children toys According to Rosalind Chait Barnett, Ph.D, women are just a marketing concept, so what parents should pay attention to is the function of toys in children to stimulate mobility, case understanding and emotional control in children. You can choose from a variety of toys that have different benefits in stimulating your child.
So that parents should not rush to worry if your daughter is playing war games or boys playing house. Your job is to direct and explain that the game is for the opposite sex so that you can show games that can have similar benefits to the child’s favorite game. For example, if your boy likes to play assembling and assembling houses, you can choose a game of dismantling multi-storey buildings for your son.
According to the psychologist Kindlon, Ph.D stated that there is no relationship between the toys that children like at the age of toddlers before adolescence and what the child will become as an adult. So you don’t have to worry if girls playing with pistols will form a violent personality. We recommend that you provide understanding and supervision, as long as your child still likes barbie dolls or plays cooking. It is possible that your daughter is only imitating her brother or her friend so that proper direction such as explanation with approach methods is important.
Meanwhile, if you go too far so that your daughter doesn’t like games, girls prefer playing toy cars so that all the accessories she likes tend to be oriented towards the opposite sex, you must be able to find out the source why your daughter becomes a tomboy. One possibility is that your child is experimenting with behavior so that he imitates his environment or wants to stand out from others around him.
Here are ways you can do when your child prefers games of the opposite sex:
- Give understanding without having to criticize it. Slowly you can change from the habit of collecting games of the opposite sex to games that are in accordance with the genre.
- To take care of his psychology you can help him deal with teasing and together with him discuss that his habit is wrong. Teach your child to like one of the interests that match the genre.
- The simple function of toys is to bring interesting learning to life, so supervision and understanding are very important for your child.
Thus, children who like games of the opposite sex have a different background if only as a means of playing with friends of the opposite sex and are not often played, let alone a favorite toy, maybe an introduction thing that is usually done, but if you don’t like games specifically for the genre your child must be careful so as not to have a deviant personality in the future.
