If dolls are for girls then cars are for boys.
My son’s fascination with race started early. At around 4 years old, he watches Formula 1 races on TV with his dad. It was their bonding moment and he even idolizes Michael Schumacher at that time.
After seeing the movie Transformer, he immediately fell in love with Bumblebee or the Camaro. Once we saw a real yellow Camaro in a car showroom, he told me, “Mom, when I grow up, I want to own a Camaro.” I told him that he can do whatever he wants as long as he works hard for it.
Dreaming big as I may say but with his tender age, I only want to inspire him to be the best he can be. Although I know how expensive it can be to maintain such a car, I would not be the one to dampen his spirits. Just like any hobby, if you are really passionate about it, you will work hard to subsidize your leisure pursuit. While your at it, you always want to have the best. It’s nothing different from jazzing up your car with original Chevy Camaro accessories. Just thinking about it, excites me already. I am sure my boy will be doubly excited.
It always nice to support your child’s dreams and imaginations, it fosters creativity and will inspire them to strive hard.
