I have a 4 1/2 year old son that has wished he was a girl for quite a while now. I ask him why he wants to be a girl and he says because girls are so beautiful. He tries to look through my makeup or try on my shoes when I'm getting ready. He's always been into singing and dancing. He likes to pretend he's Snow White and Cinderella by wearing a scarf around his waist and pretending it is a tutu.
His father and I have no problems with he's behavior. Our rule has been not to encourage it OR discourage it either. If our son tells us he's gay one day, that'll be fine with us. Will love him, of course.
What do you think? Is this a "phase"? Do a lot of boys go through it?
