The natural instinct of a child should never be forced to something different, this can cause a child to have doubt within themselves.
Our society is becoming more accepting of what is being called grey kids, a child pushed away from their natural instinct. How do you as a parent cope with this choice of our society? How are your children reacting?
Dr. Meg Meeker says, “Infants, young children, and toddlers have strong impulses towards being feminine or being masculate. You can’t write that out of them. What is happening now is that parents are raising or trying to raise what I call grey kids, they want them to be neutral to sort of pushing away their natural instinct. For the little 2 year old that gravitates towards playing with a doll, saying no, no, no, here’s a truck too, I know you may want to be a boy also, not only does it confuse them, but makes them doubt their own instincts.”
