Or what should be depicted in modern children’s books
My little boy was asking me to please prepare him dinner one day. I responded why did he ask me to prepare the dinner, as we were all sitting together in the living room, which meant any of us – myself or my husband - could have prepared the dinner.
A part of me was hoping for an answer like „Because your meals are so delicious, and your cooking skills are top-notch! “. Another part of me was feeling my hair standing on end already. Are we having a stereotyping-challenge to overcome here with our toddler?
