I’ve recently returned from visiting a friend and her family. She has three children: a girl of three, a boy and two and a boy of two months. Although she raises them equally and with very little television, the eldest is still getting influenced by the little television that she does watch. She discovered pink from Peppa Pig and princesses from Frozen. Her mother hates anything stereotypically “girly”, and although she accepts that that is what her daughter likes, I know she wishes her role models were a little more balanced.
