I have taught in both very urban and very rural schools and have taught these same Aistear themes too. I’ve observed similar reactions from the boys to the perceived girly activities. However interestingly the boys in the rural school were a lot more open to engaging in the activity than the boys in the urban school were. Likewise the boys engaged in rough play with the dolls however the rural boys were happy to take instruction from their female peers on how to wash the hair and care for the doll but in the Urban school the boys just laughed and played more roughly.
