When I was looking back at the year's archive of parenting posts one theme kept coming up again and again: gender. Our readers are a pretty progressive bunch and much of the discussion through the year was a reaction against marketing and media images portraying children in stereotypical gender roles. We also talked about breaking out of these stereotypes in our own homes. • Pink Quandaries: What Color to Paint a Toy Mower? • Solitary Man: Reflections of a Lone Dad at Playgroup • LEGO Friends: Yay or Nay? • Girlie-Girl Culture At Home • GoldieBlox: Encouraging Girls to Embrace Engineering • Swedish Toy Catalog Aims for Gender Neutral Imagery • Happy 40th, Free To Be You And Me! • Roominate: A Design Toy for Girls • Children's Design Clichés & Self-Fulfilling Prophecies • Going Gender Neutral: Kids' Twin Bedding More
