Who said boys don´t like dancing? Press continuously the side arrows on the slideshow and just see how my 5 years old boy enjoys every movement. No stereotype can refrain his smile. Want to see some more? Check this dancing baby!
As a mother of three little men I wonder how many boys are given the freedom to become Dancing Kings if they want to. Maybe they wish to play with dolls or role play teachers, householders, ballet dancers and cooks. But social pressure makes them feel embarassed if they do so.
Educating for gender equality is not just a femenine issue, though girls are denied a good deal of experience too. Name it woodworking, system analists or speed racer meteor girls.
Grownup men who know how to organize family life or adult women who know how to fix dameged wheels will probably be independent, brilliant and selfreliant. And they´ll be quite attractive for the opposite sex too!
Being mothers and society so much concerned about toy hazard recalls, I believe is time to care for our children´s safety under a new perspective. I invite you to join me creating educational recalls and give children the opportunity to enjoy their inborn gifts and talents safely, overcoming gender differences.
How are we going to do it? Just post your comment adding suggestions of toys, experiencies and general activities you observe children are denied or encouraged to get involved with just because of their gender. Let us make this recall grow huge. Let us grant children the opportunity to freely and happily become what they deserve to be.
