Had some friends over for dinner the other night and they arrived as we were putting our two children to bed. I was reading a Swedish Children’s Book called Totte och Malin to my two and a half year old. One part of the book explains in really simple terms the difference between (ahem!) little boys and little girls.
Being brought up in Sweden, where this sort of thing is very common, I thought nothing of this, but afterwards one of my English friends (who will remain nameless) was really shocked that we would show this to a young child…
We put it down to cultural differences, but then I decided to write a quick blog post and canvas public opinion.
So, what do you think – did Claire over-react? Oops sorry Claire!
