Besides being a safe, constant companion for your child, this little angel should provide security when the lights go out at night. Dolls highlight an amazing natural capacity children have for nurturing. Have you ever watched a young child speak to their doll or cuddly, naturally moving into a soft, gentle voice?
Doll and cuddly play should not be a gender divide. In today's world, men are nurturing fathers as women are nurturing mothers. Both boys and girls gain from exploring how to grow up and take on the role of a nurturing adult. If we encourage this natural affinity to love a doll or cuddly, the child moves toward developing the ability to give selflessly and care for others with compassion.
Loving and caring for a doll fosters imaginative play. From a psychological perspective, it's hard to imagine the vulnerability a young child feels in a big adult-sized world. Doll play allows children to deal with that vulnerability in a safe context. Children can work out their negative feelings through imaginative play with a doll, without involving another child.
