Hello Sir/Ma'am Viraaj is 5 years old.. Generally I have notice that whomsoever in family speaks some new words, or any difficult sentence, he speaks after us that same thing in himself.. So is it fine? Another thing I want to ask he likes to work in kitchen with us and to play kitchen set.. so should we say to him that all such things are only for girls, or not? Thank You

I understand your concern. Its very obvious that he copies whatever he listens because children dont do what we ask them to do instead, they do what they see us doing. So its ok if he is doing so. In this regard u have to be very careful about what u are speaking. Each child is unique and we are no one to judge what is meant for girl or what for boy. It is we who put them into complexity of gender bender. All works are meant for all genders so there is no point in picking this topic. It is very likely that it came to ur mind that these tasks are meant for girls as since ages its been taught to us by our parents this way. But we should not teach gender biasnes to our children. It is also very much clear in this era of lockdown when maids are not coming and males in the family are also helping in household chores. So let him explore all fields do not worry it will help him. Take Care
