If this was your kid and his choice of toys and his attitude was impacting his friendships at school,what would you do?
Is there an age where you'd start to worry? What if he wanted girl clothes at 12,13?
Right now as it stands,he has 2 friends who are girls. They think its cute that he plays with what he does,but very soon even they are likely to abandon him.
I know as moms we want to stand behind our child's choices,but when these things are making them stand out and are causing them to be picked on,what do we do?
As a side note,we think that our SIL and MIL buy him these things because my SIL wanted a girl and had 2 boys. We think she's encouraging him to want these things. Because of her choices he's led a sheltered life and likes being mommy's little girl. The dad is not in the picture BTW

I understand what people are saying when they say "let him be who he is" but it sounds like he has never got the chance. If your SIL and MIL are trying to make him a girl and not allowing him to act his age( Dora at 9? really?) he is going to be really screwed up emotionally. I mean if he really likes girl stuff then whatever but if he never got a chance to like boy stuff because his mom is trying to make him a girl then there is a problem. Are you married or do you have a boyfriend or brother who could maybe spend some time with him. Not necessarily doing man things but letting him choose what he wants to do and see what happens. If this little boy really likes girl stuff them be supportive and help him learn to stand up for himself.
