We like Groovy Girls While I am not a fan of Barbies, I have allowed my oldest dd to keep the one she received as a gift- I think for my oldest dd Barbies would be extremely appealing if they were banned from our house outright, especially since they are so visible in children's toy departments. However, when we see Barbies in the store, I do occasionally point out to my girls that I personally am not a big fan of Barbies, Bratz, etc. because I don't think they represent...

OMG, I'm so sorry you had to experience that
I haven't read all of the responses, but just wanted to say that we have been through this with dd1, who had 90% labial adhesions. When they were first discovered, we were given Premarin and I used it twice, then stopped because I was concerned about side effects. Surgery was recommended, which we refused to consider. I finally left it alone and just kept an eye on things. She just turned 7 and her labia are opening on their own with no treatment, and there are almost no...

Chicopee High, Class of '92
I'm sorry that happened to you, and am glad you're okay. I think I would probably contact the local media to see if they would be willing to cover the issue to help increase awareness. Chicopee was my hometown growing up, although I haven't visited in about six years
I haven't read all of the responses, but I just wanted to share that in my experience as an art teacher working with preschool/early elementary age students, there is a very wide range of what could be considered "normal" drawing ability. Overall, girls tend to draw recognizable shapes at an earlier age than boys, although there are plenty of exceptions. Also, regardless of the end result, girls and boys tend to put the same amount of energy and thought into their artwork....
