Re: what do you allow your 8 year old to do??

Like PP said, my ds1 does all of this too. He's still very much a 5 year old. He is currently playing legos with his ds2. He loves legos, drawing/coloring, playing outside in all types of weather, reading, playing cars, playing house, playing with kids of all ages and so on. But he still likes his digital camera. He is very much an artistic type personality and loves taking pictures of nature and people. Maybe he'll be a photographer one day, who knows. But just because he's only 5 and is a child doesn't mean I won't help foster his interests.
