How to make my nephew more BOYISH!

My nephew is 15 and is infatuated with Miley Cyrus. He listens to her music all day long. Her website is his homepage. He has this one magazine that he lays on the table and eats while staring at it. He is being Hannah Montana for halloween... Is there anyway I can guide him toward boyish things.. Any sports....Or is it too late?

  • Leave him alone. Seriuosly. Just let this kid be who he is, and love him unconditionally. Just stop, and think about the kind of shit he probably has to deal with in high school. A 15 yo boy who is obsessed with Hannah Montana probably isn't winning any popularity contests. If you are close with him, it may be very hurtful if you bring it up, or try to change him.

  • LET HIM BE HE ISNT YOUR KID AND IF HE IS HAPPY THATS ALL THAT SHOULD MATTER. LET IT GO!

  • I wouldn't force anything on him. He is who he is. It's okay for him to like that stuff. He could be gay, or he could just really think she's hot! lol ;)

    Don't stress about it and try to influence him, as it will just hurt him and possibly cause problems for him later on, emotionally.

  • If he's happy, who cares. Let him be who he is.

  • You'll never have a positive relationship with him unless you accept him just as he is. You could try asking him why he likes her...does he think she's pretty...or does he want to be like her. Either way accept his answer and let him know that you love him.

  • Let him be. I agree with previous post about asking him if he things she's hot or if he wants to be like her...if your curious ask. But accept his answer and love this young man as is. It's called unconditional love. It sounds like your close to him so JUST be his loving Aunt...that's more important.
    BTW....ARGH~ regarding Miley Cyrus...I'm so sick of hearing about that little girl.....lol

  • Why do people want to change other people all the time?! It not your job to insist he be as "masculine" as you think he should be. You're afraid he's gay arent you? If he is, what are you going to do then? Try to make him "un-gay"?
