Over the last couple of days JJ has said things to me like, he can’t work in that shop because he’s a man, or she can’t drive a truck because she’s a woman.
Where has he got these things from?
I know he has a couple of old books that talk about jobs like fireMAN, policeMAN, nurse (woman) and so on and I try not to encourage him reading these. I probably should just take them away but nowhere in my vocabulary is there any mention of only women working in shops or only men driving trucks.
I made sure to tell him that women can drive trucks and that men can work in shops.
I know he wasn’t absolutely convinced.
