Is you daughter a Princess / son a Prince?

I kow alot of people who say that. I am one of them. I just think it means that they are spoiled & beautiful( which they are) .

So do you call your kids that, what does it mean to you?

Or are you someone who think it is silly to do that, why ?

  • I call my dd princess for a variety of reasons.
    1. She is a princess, as she is a benefactor of a Christian's inheritance and a daughter of the King of kings.
    2. She is gorgeous.
    3. She is our baby and she knows we loe her more than anything, except each other.
    4. We want her to know that our loe is always there for her.
    5. When her father calls her Princess, she is learning what a man should treat her like--with the love, caring, kindness, courtesy and respect my husband, her daddy, treats her.
    6. She's too cute NOT to call Princess! LOL

    Now, she also gets called Monkey Monster when she is being a goofball, so we don't ALWAYS call her Princess!

  • I would never say that and I would never treat my child that way. When you treat your child like they are a princess/prince they think that is how they are supposed to be treated by everyone. They try to make people treat them that way or are upset when people don't. It's not healthy.

    The people who are psychologically healthiest have a combination of the best qualities of being female and of being male. If you are a woman you have the good qualities of being a woman, not the bad, and the good qualities that we attribute to being male. Non-sexist childrearing helps promote kids growing up to have these kind of qualities. Girls get tool kits and boys get dolls to play with. Pink would be out along with calling your daughter a princess.

  • Oh good grief, our children aren't going to be psychologically damaged because we call them our little princes/princesses or giving them pink toys. Where do you get this stuff, seriously? You talk smack in each and every single post. I guess we shouldn't let our daughters wear dresses or grow their hair long either? Your post is absolutely ridiculous and absurd, but I'm not surprised you are always saying crazy stuff.

  • I just wanted to add to the gail comment....I was raised as a princess...and yet I am very nice and caring ( not mean/ rude to people) and I am the "handyman" of the house.... I even have my very own pink toolbox filled with real manly tools !

  • Nope. I have two boys and i never call them "prince" as a nickname or refer to them as a prince when speaking to others. I have lots of other nicknames for them.
    there is a little girl who goes to school with my younger son. Her mom calls her princess all the time and it's a bit annoying. Come to find out, my son does not like the little girl because she is mean.

  • I call my daughter a princess and treat he like one all the time. And, she really and truely believes she's one. She is not spoiled to the point that she is rude. She's jsut and I don't have to worry about spills and messes from her. She's a girly...girl. I even wish could introduce her to a real prince when she's make it really happen for her.

    Is that too much?
