    Is this pushing a child to become something that they are not?

    It's 2010. I'm learning that anything goes nowadays.
    Thank God for being old school.

    This would be more appropriately described as: "PARENTS allow son to dress up like a girl."

    This isn't a single mother. This young boy has a Black father who is accepting of this also.

    However, all I can do is shake my head at this mother and father with all this "embracing" and "acceptance," especially in a child this age.

    Clawd, have mercy.

    In a child this young, IMO,........YES!


    Many young children go through phases like this.

    Good grief!

    How many little girls are "tom-boyish" at that age and older?

    How many little girls like playing with traditional boy toys?

    How many mothers go through resistance and drama to get their little girls in a dress at that age and older?

    How many little girls are NOT "prissy" at that age?

    Almost all of this can apply to my own childhood; but I'm still a heterosexual Black woman today and my mother didn't need to write a BOOK about how I wouldn't wear a dress or played like a boy with my older brothers!

    Yeah that book is out there....

    I've seen boys in the dress-up area in the pre-school classrooms dress up in girl's dresses and what-not...

    I'll admit it bothers me a little....but I just remember they are just kids,

    but still if I had a son I don't think I would be too thrilled if I saw him dressing up as a girl

    At this juncture, Brother James, I ono thank that'll do it. :cool:

    He needs some intense male-bonding and some age-appropriate male rites of passage or sumpn.

    I remember a thread about an organization in the States providing this.


    But, this is one family who definitely needs to turn off the tv!


    Can somebody say, "TOO MUCH BEYONCE!"
