good call on that duplicate - I had forgotten we had that one. If the OP wants a technical content filtering solution, SU is definitely the place to ask.

comment Why do toddler boys love trains and cars so much?
I think anyone can get obsessive. Which is why tamagotchi, top trump cards, pokemon etc all do so well. But the gender bias is entirely cultural. We make sure wherever possible that our kids get no gender steer...which unfortunately means collectibles and other progression toys just keep on building up in their rooms... :-/

Voting to close as it is not a parenting issue, and is entirely opinion based.

Hi Bec - if you look at the top answer here, you'll see they provide some supporting information. This helps provide a better answer to future visitors, as this site is not a discussion forum, but a Q&A site.

I think this has been covered before - can't find the question right now, but the key answer was sorting the message out between you two - you need a consistent message to the children. So this is less of a parenting question, and more of a working together as a couple question.

We did something very similar, but additionally (while being right there) let our eldest reach out quite far towards the fire until he went "Ow, hot hot hot." This was still a good few inches away, but he never went close to a fire again.
