Whose the parent here?

Mattel? Or you? Stupid, stupid letter mam! Very stupid! My sister grew up with Barbie (the original) and she's a fine career woman with too many job demands, pissed because she had her kids close to age 40 because she was too busy climbing the career ladder and making the big bucks, and has not enough time to spend with them because now she's an actual officer of her company, and the Nanny just isn't cutting it like she used to. Her kids are very needy and very demanding when she is around and that just makes her nastier. But she pops a 20 dollar bill their way and that shuts them up for a few hours!
Enough? Because the above is all true. And did I mention that she and her husband fight like cats and dogs ALL the time over money, time, career moves, their "other" business that she purchased for him to keep him busy because he felt emasculated by her career power!
Wow...........life is hard enough. Why pile this junk on it. Your daughter just might want to stay home and take care of her children. Your son might too. Both are an okay scenairo, either way you slice and dice it. Labeling is very limiting. Your letter is very limiting. Pull your head out!
