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 PlaygroupLEGO Friends: Yay or Nay?Girlie-Girl Culture At HomeGoldieBlox: Encouraging Girls to Embrace EngineeringSwedish Toy Catalog Aims for Gender Neutral ImageryHappy 40th, Free To Be You And Me!Roominate: A Design Toy for GirlsChildren's Design Clichés & Self-Fulfilling PropheciesGoing Gender Neutral: Kids' Twin Bedding
