Thursday evening I hung out with my k. Tell the babysitter that while you don't mind the dress up, she must encourage your son to wear fun things for him that you have provided so that your son will be included and NOT as the guinea pig model for the girls. I am having a boy in the next month, and I already know that if he ever wants to play with Barbie, or dress in dresses, I will do everything I can to support his wants and needs. I don't see any reason your boy shouldn't have a princess dress - if we could afford one, I'd get one for my boys whenever we playdate and they play dressup, they love the glittery princess stuff. Most of the 3 year olds I know have not completely figured out the gender thing. He was adorable, and we rolled with it because we figured he'd grow out of it.

How do we go about changing perceptions of what's allowable behaviour in boys dancing is very common in other countries for example. Children are always exploring themselves, learning about themselves, forming and changing opinions about their likes and dislikes.
When he was three, my son adored prancing about in tutus, and cheerleaders outfits, or naked with body paint. They flock around him and want to hug him or sit next to him. My son loved wearing toenail polish! Tell his dad it's just a stage it might be easier on both of them if your son wears the princess dress when dad's out of the house, but don't make an issue of it. When I came to his room, he was already under his covers, and I was suspicious. This fear of other people's judgements is compounded by the fact that my son has two mothers and thus I am faced with people's spoken or unspoken accusations that my son's gender identity non-coformity is due to his family structure.
