Would you allow your DS to paint his nails?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

My DD is 4 and loves to have her nails painted. Everytime I do my DS who is 2 always asks to have his nails painted. I usually paint either 1 nail or his toenails. If I do allow him to have his nails painted my MIL always give me hell for it and acts like I'm trying to turn him gay. To me he is 2 and doesnt understand yet that painting your nails is usually something girls do. If he was in school I'd probably be more hesitant to do it but at his age I don't see it as a big deal. What do you think?

Well my 3yr old son has purple nails right now so I think that means I'm ok with it :) I was doing my nails and my daughter asked to have hers done so I did them. When my son saw his sisters nails he asked for his to be done too; but he was disappointed I didn't have orange nail polish.

I paint my son's nails... usually his toes, he doesn't want it on his hands.  I just bought more "boyish" colors for him... he has blue and green


Tell you MIL to grow up

You can't turn someone gay. Your MIL can suck an egg, if he wants his nails done, do them.

When I'd paint my toenails Ds would ask me to do his. I use blue and only do his toes and he enjoys it. He even insisted i paint sisters toes, she was only a few months old, that time they were all pink.

If I don't do it neither does he.

So, no because I don't wear it myself.

If I did I might do a nail on each hand to make him feel a part of the group but once in school....No.
