  • one of my good friends will NOT wear pink, I have seen her in a dress ONCE, she plays all sorts of sports... that is simply who she is. she is a good mom but not a froo froo one.

  • Some do, and some don't. Just let her be herself, and all will be well.

  • I was exactly that way when I was 13, and still am to an extent. I do now one several skirts(no dresses) but no high heels, Hate to wear nail polish and only where limited pink, lol

    So it just depends on who she is and what she likes.

  • Would it be so bad if she did not "grow out of it"?

    (Or if she WERE a lesbian?)

    She is who she is...she will be who she will be.

  • Well all I can say is some do and some don't. My one daughter always wore black she thought no one would notice she is a girl that way. Guess what at 19 she has finally started to enjoy her famine side.

  • I never have and I am 33 years old. I don't paint my nails or "fix my hair" I wear jeans and sweatshirts and tennis shoes all the time. My mom accepts it, but she has never really stopped trying. I have 3 brothers, so I have always just been one of the "boys"
