Re: Men that try to push sports on kids... what do you do?

Oh man that is tough and sounds like our family! We are not sports people at all. Now our youngest seems to be naturally inclinded to play and we will follow him on that. Thankfully we don't have anyone in our family that is so into it that they buy all that stuff and send it.

It's hard isn't it since it's gifts? :/ I'm wondering if approaching it like "Oh goodness don't you know the boys are so into [x] thing now?? They would love more of that.." Would that work with him?

I admit, when it comes to commercialism there are some things I don't care for but on Disney stuff [the parks and all that] I'm totally sold. That said I wouldn't get people lots of stuff if/when I knew they didn't like it.
