  • My daughter use to think her name was Princess. Though she is not a brat at all. It depends on how their raised. She's well mannered. Parents just have to be parents instead of trying to always please their kids.

  • Yes, its over used, but if that is what your daughter loves are you going to say no because you don't like it? I remember cringing when I bought my daughter her first set of character PJs, Dora, I HATED them, but they made her the happiest little girl in the world. I quickly grew to love them =)

  • I personally am pretty happy I had a boy. I can't STAND all the pinkness and tutus and princess crap for girls. If my second one is going to be a girl, I have every intention of avoiding the color pink and anything "princess" or even worse, "diva" related like the plague.

  • Anouck I said the same thing about a girl. Well 6 yrs later and my oldest loves pink and my youngest loves the princesses. So never say never. I have grown to like pink and I am not going to stop my girls from having the things they love.

  • Call me strange, but I actually love the princess phenomenon and am really happy to be raising a girl now. I think it's adorable to see them playing make believe in their princess dresses. I'm a girly girl at heart, and so are my daughters, so we have a blast doing the whole princess bit.

  • Both my daughters loved princesses. Both had a princess themed party. My younger daughter would play dress up daily she would be a princess and I would have to call her by her princess name Pocahontas or Ariel, Cinderella etc. My daughters both have a healthy balance. Both girls do think they are princesses and they are now 19 and 17 to their father and I they are! They get excellent grades in school, are very respectful do not get into any trouble. Nothing is wrong with having a girl y girl. I LOVE IT. My husband and I have twin boys who are 5 they are totally opposite they love getting dirty, playing sports and that is fine with me too.

  • Its funny I was always against the whole princess thing too, hated when people called their kids that and hated the whole idea of it mostly because of some grown women that I know who still call themselves that! I tried to avoid it but my daughter just loves the disney princesses, through no fault of my own, she got a huge wall sticker as a gift and everyone keeps giving her princess dolls, etc. I don't think its a big deal now because she calls herself a princess at the age of 2 1/2 and loves to dress like one. At this point its cute but I certainly won't encourage it when she's older!

  • I have 2 boys, no girls, thank goodness,and whenever I hear "Princess" I cringe. It conjures up images of spoiled rotten little Daddy's girls who whine and cry and have to have everything their own way. No thanks.

  • I don't mind Disney stuff, but I can't stand the princess thing. Someone called my 18 month old DD the other day and I cringed. I did dress her in pink, which I said I never would, but she doesn't need to be spoiled like that. I'm girly enough, and so is she (she loves playing mommy with dolls, but also likes cars and blocks)
