I'm not sure if this is the place to post this link to the book My Princess Boy. It's about children and child-rearing (to an extent), but it also touches on stuff we've been talking about in other threads in the Parlor.

I hope positive things come of this. I hope this is the shape of the next generation - little boys unafraid to wear glitter and dresses, and parents willing to let them. So far, the comments aren't so bad.

I need to go put that on my reading list.

I hope it is the future as well. In a perfect world we would all be able to just BE. And I like to think we are getting there.

Forward to age 4, when Dyson and his 8-year-old brother went shopping with mom for Halloween costumes. Older brother settled on a ninja turtle. Dyson begged for Cinderella. The worried mom made the purchase and made sure his private school was aware of his costume choice.

In solidarity, three "stereotypically macho men" who work at the school dressed up as ballerinas

So sweet.

I just watched the video on the book's facebook site where the family went on that news program. The older brother's comment "just let him be happy mom" made me get a tear in my eye.
