Quote by Linda Evans
I played with dolls until I was 15. My mother encouraged it because my older sister got married when she was 15, so Mom thought that the longer I stayed with dolls, the better.
This quote suggests that the speaker's mother influenced her to continue playing with dolls until the age of 15. The mother's reasoning behind this encouragement was likely influenced by the eldest daughter marrying at a young age. The mother might believe that keeping the speaker engaged with dolls would delay her interest in romantic relationships and promote her overall development.
