Hello All: I'm the mother of a six year old boy. I'm concerned about the recent behavior shown by my son. The other day we were at the local mall, I was there to buy him some new jeans and underwear. While I was going over the boy's underwear, I saw that he had wondered over to the girl's underwear counter and was looking at the different panties on display. He came over to me and asked if he could have some of the girl's underwear (panties) too. I was a bit taken, to say the least, and afraid he would create a scene in front of the sales lady, who didn't help matters, by saying, "Oh isn't that sweet." So right or wrong, I went over and select a half dozen pairs to take home. Do you feel this is a sign that my son may be feminine? Should I have just ignored him? He has insisted on wearing the girls underwear each day. I will not allow him to wear them during his school time. I tried sitting down with him and explaining that boys didn't wear girls things, but then I get a look that would break my heart at other times. I would appreciate any suggestions or advise you may have. Thanks
