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.
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
buy that kid a football!
At this juncture, Brother James, I ono thank that'll do it.
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!"
for real partner!
I'm waiting for a post on mothers that married their own sons, and had babies
it was so ...well..it's sick, but so out there, and going on and what not,
that the 1990s reunited Last Poets even rapped about it in "Story of Our Loss"
Montel had several shows on this!
teaching babies to smoke weed
OK therefore what is needed nationaly and what do we need to do before we lose all civilization and even a shred of knowledge of self???????
That right there is CRAZY
