Why Boys Don't Play with Dolls

Boys still prefer playing with trucks and girls still prefer playing with dolls. The source of these preferences might not only in society but outside of it — in brain chemistry, prenatal hormonal influences, genes, etc. Of course, the people’s behavior observed by children every day, the traditions, and expectation from others may also have a great impact on children.

According to recent studies, there are small cognitive differences between the sexes today. Thanks to the feminist movement, there has been done a lot for women, but it has hardly turned the US into a playground free of sex roles. It did not make women stop dieting or men stop preventing them for this.

We should carefully look at the way we raise our children. It is easier for people to play traditional roles and do actions that require less of efforts. In most families, mothers and fathers play traditional roles, obeying the old rules. One of the ways of explaining children about their gender is through their toys. Playing with the truck is currently considered more naturally for boys, taking to account their possible future role and occupation. If a father of a boy is a truck driver, this obviously sends certain signals to his son of what his is. Children see the roles played by their parents and aim to match them.

The gender roles keep evolving, but obviously, there is something that determines who boys are and who girls are, even apart social influences. Growing up in society will help kids to understand better what they are or what they want to become. With sex roles, people tend to conform to what is necessary.

While playing a game with other girls, a three-year-old boy may insist that nurses are female and doctors are male, even if his own mother is a physician. In three years he may understand the situation better and discover that the other way is also possible. These days, about a half of all medical students are female, at the same time as male applications to nursing school are inching upward. Maybe tomorrow 3-year-old boys, while playing a doctor, will assign the roles differently.

Kids are not born polite, religious, or kind, but they are able to remember the roles of the others as well as understand their expectations. The toys are just a usual traditional way to entertain kids, but they should not be determining for their role in society. Each day, children receive signals on how one gender differs from another, and it should be, eventually, up to him, which toy they would like to choose to play.

Boys still prefer playing with trucks and girls still prefer playing with dolls. The source of these preferences might not only in society but outside of it — in brain chemistry, prenatal hormonal influences, genes, etc. Of course, the people’s behavior observed by children every day, the traditions, and expectation from others may also have a great impact on children.
