  1. D’you know, I faced exactly this dilemma in 1984, when my third child was a boy. I knew I was never going to say to his sisters, “You can’t do that because you’re a girl,” and I never did and managed to not say the equivalent to him, but only just. Masculinity is just as constructed as femininity – ach, it’s late and I must go to bed, but I may be back. Very best wishes to you and you boy. Mine’s going to be 30 soon and he’s grand x

    1. Only just saw this Anna, but thank you so much for you comment. My boy is now 2 and this struggle for balance keeps getting harder (he already seems to think he can’t go near pink!) but we’re doing our best. Good to know your son is a happy chap!
