    Default If your son loved wearing dresses...

    My little brother loved getting dressed up (has 4 older sisters). He was always putting on the ballet clothes and the girls dressing up clothes but only in the house. Even now at 11 if he's in a bad mood he will sometimes go and get himself all dolled up in sisters clothes lol looks very attractive aswell! He also loves boys dressing up clothes and his suits etc so as long as your DS is happy I wouldn't say it's a problem. The pink/purple tops idea sounds really good :-)

    Why? Why is pink for girls and blue for boys? Who says? Who made the rule?

    I think you should be encouraging him to be who he wants to be and wear whatever he wants to.

    In saying that I would hate for him to be treated "differently" or even bullied because of it.

    I think one of our many duties as a parent is to teach our children tolerance and acceptance of others.

    My 12 year old son is begging me for a pair of purple or pink skinny jeans ATM. I just can't find them in his size! It's all the rage.

    but If it were my son that wanted to wear that stuff I wouldn't allow it as that's just the way I've been brought up. pink and pretty stuffs for girls boys are rough and tough and should be wearing blues greens.boy colors really I'd allow him to wear that sort of stuff once he's moved out of home

    It's tough one i just think for the sake of people teasing him i wouldn't allow it good luck with it

    Oh and for the sewing part let him go for it . It could help him with a Job when his older
    Rubbish, re boy and girls colours.

    That's a social construction and a gender stereotype. Baby boys used to be dressed in pink 200 years ago.

    Since when did colours have genders?

    So basically, quash all his natural wants, attractions and desires that he's naturally drawn too so he fits in with what you deem appropriate?
    I think that's setting a child up for low self esteem and thinking there's something wrong with them. You make your opinion sound very simple but it has the potential to be very damaging.

    LJ - Your DS is amazing! Have you spoken to him about wearing what he wants outside the home? Does HE wamt too? Does he request it? Is he aware of the ramifications? How aware is he of his amazing sense of style?
