My granddaughter was turning two. My daughter asked my grandson what he thought his younger sister would like for a birthday present. Without hesitating, he said: “I think she would like a plastic penis!” I have a friend who was raised in a traditional Italian family. My friend used to complain that her parents never listened to her but they ALWAYS listened when her older brother spoke. I told her to get a plastic penis and put in on the table. I told her I could not guarantee that they would listen, but that I bet it would get their attention.
