Today’s Gift Idea:
Here is today’s gift idea tip inspired by our featured picture book, NURSE CLEMENTINE. Read the book to a child in your life each day as a reminder of what you are deciding and practicing that day.
November 9, 2013:
Gift Idea: Consider that some boys like typical girl activities like art, cooking, designing, etc. – even a doll to play with. Likewise, some girls like typical boy activities like cars and trucks, sports, building things, etc.
If you are interested in giving a girl toys usually given to boys or giving a boy toys usually given to girls, make sure both parents are OK with that. If not, think about whether the child will be able to have fun with the toy, if someone in the family is possibly going to make fun of her or stop her from playing with the toy.
