buying little girls a toy kitchen set- instilling roles in them too early?
12/29/2010 at 02:45 AM

i may be totally over thinking this but my mother wants to buy my little girls a toy kitchen set, rather like these: http://internal.twenga.com/price-toy-kitchen-set.html
now ordinarily i wouldnt have a problem with this, i mean im sure they have one at their nursery but i have noticed it is only the girls who are playing with it. i dont want to bring my daughters up thinking that it is their role to be kitchen-bound, that wasnt how i was brought up...
now they are only 3 years old, al i looking into this all a little bit too much? i mean realistically, the only other make believe toys out there are hoovers and sewing machines so i suppose there isnt much scope... can anyone advise?

Do you have any children with this man?

Refuse to allow this child back into your home. If his father insists, leave and make your own life. You deserve more than to have to live in such a scary and chaotic environment. This 16 y/o is his father's responsibility, not yours, and the situation will be even worse for you now than it was.

2X, great advice, so great it deserved to be repeated.

How does a parent standby and allow their child to act in such ways? Dad refuses to deal with these issues, but has no problem handing themn off to you. Take 2X's advice and tell Dad no way. Dad should have been on this kid several years ago. How does a parent allow their child to act this way and sit back and feel they have prepared their child for living in the real world?

Your grown daughter needs to find her own way. So do you. Being dependent on this man puts your life at risk, and destroys peace and happiness.

Call social services and see what is available in your area. If the government won't provide structured foster care for this boy, then maybe they will provide shelter for you.

Proverbs 15:17
Better is a dinner of herbs where love is, than a stalled ox and hatred therewith.

Homeless and relatively safe, roof overhead with fear and danger.
