I have a 6 year old son. He’s a great guy. He is a wonderful big brother to his 2 younger siblings. He does chores regularly. He loves to play with trucks, dinosaurs, and paper airplanes.
Here is my concern. He has always preferred to play with girls. His best friends are always girls. When he lists who he wants to invite to his birthday parties, it’s 90% girls. He only wants to sit next to girls to eat lunch at school.
At this age, almost all kids I see have sexually segregated, boys mostly play with boys, and girls with girls. He is having a harder and harder time finding girls who want to play with him.
So my questions are:
Should I be concerned?
Does anyone know any boys who were like that? What happened when they got older?
Were are men on this board like this as children?
What does it mean?
