    So that justifies your child being nasty?

    You just said you didn't say anything about it. I am not saying that kids don't say the wrong thing sometimes, but that is why we are parents. To try and steer them in the right direction.

    The fact that your 6 year old would refer to other kids as 'lame' - and that you'd do nothing about it - makes me so sad both for your son, and the other kids he meet that don't fall into your tiny scope of 'normal'.

    But you would allow him to tease?

    But you're setting other children up for that, by teaching your DS it's okay to call other children lame and laugh at them because of what they wear or what their favourite colour is.

    Hmmm, makes sense.

    No, she'll just make enough noise that the council will ban it because she doesn't like feeling uncomfortable around anything not in her tiny tiny world view.

    This makes me sad. This is why there are bullies... Because parents don't step in and educate their children when it starts. Kids aren't born nasty... They're taught to hate and discriminate.

    I guess it's too much to assume that parents might raise their children to be tolerant of differences - let alone embrace them.

    I won't even comment on how ridiculous it is that children feel it is ok to tease other children based on their clothes. How do children even know to do that?

    Oh wait. Stupid question.

    I certainly wouldnt tolerate my child making fun of another child for any reason - Even despite my own personal opinion on boys in dresses.

    Ive never once in my life seen a little boy in a dress so im guessing its not the norm anyway!

    Kids tease for things that go against what they learn to believe. Why not teach him tolerance and acceptance of all walks of life, that it's not 'lame' to be different but rather brave and wonderful that the child can be whatever he/she wants?
    Our children don't have to bully/be bullied but they need to be given the opportunity to be better people and that starts with the parents setting an example.



    In regards to the OP, I had no idea what I would do, but my reply to blossompossum just put it into perspective for me; I would let my child whatever they choose, but I would first let them know how some narrow minded people may react, ultimately though, the decision is theirs
