Barbie to the Rescue

Riley reminds me of my daughter Ryann. She can be found sitting in a princess dress in her sandbox playing with little green army men having Barbie rescue the soldiers from the "hot lava" mud puddle they are drowning in. I think Riley has parents that think the way I do. I do not try to impose stereotypes. There is no right and wrong when it comes to what toys she plays with or what color she should wear. Questions are encouraged in my home and it seems it is that way in Riley's home as well. A concept as simple as it being OK for a boy to play with a doll, or a girl to play with a chemistry set could be the foundation for that boy to a nurturing father as an adult, and that girl to find a new energy source.

I can only hope that more parents are raising their children this way. To explore and question is the foundation for education. Have you seen "longterm relationship barbie"? Shes sitting on the toilet while Ken is shaving. :)
