Mom of Princess Boy speaks out on the Today Show
LOL, "don't shoot me yet." I'm fairly certain everyone here just loves you to pieces. :smileyhappy:
<<Your thoughts on the mom and how she's handling this? >>
I think she is doing a great service to parents of GLBT kids, because I've often heard in interviews with GLBT adults that they have known they were "different" since they were very very young. I don't know this boy at all, but I applaud his mom encouraging him to discover his true self. I would be concerned about teasing, but that's because my own son is extremely sensitive and he would have a hard time being teased/bullied for being different. I think I would probably encourage him to dress the way he wants in private, but to wear pants and a shirt at school. Shoot, that boy was dressed way nicer than I'd ever dress my princess GIRL for school--at recess she gets all dirty and disheveled.
I think the mom and little boy
I use to worry about the teasing with my dd, but it has not been a problem, if anyone says anything to her she puts em right in their place. There are other "tom boys" in dds class who's s mother's would not allow theiir girls to wear althetic shorts and boys polo ya know the ones that do not have the baby doll cut,
The mother does not use the childs name in his book, i do not see it as exploitive but advocating. Iam sure "Tyson" is not the only little boy who likes pink and prefers dresses. I view
Since my boys do not wear frilly dresses, i cannot say what i would do personally. Would i let them go out of the house? My dd dresses in boys attire everyday.
