It's not, people (and therefor children) are what they are. Wich is why I stated in my earlier post that you can give them all the toys i the world, but they will only play with what they like. I believe a lot of this is in people's character and as parents you can only "work" within those limits. As in, you can't turn a girlie girl into a tomboy.
