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?

Tell mil to fuck off and mind her own business. This thinking annoys the crap out of me. My son has had his nails painted. He likes blue. Why would I tell him no if it is not going to harm him at all. It's not a big deal.

in the house yes, but not to go out, I don't really think it's even a good idea to put it on boy or girl

Sure I would. I don't see a problem.

My son is 6 1/2 and in first grade. He's often rocking some color on his toenails. LOL
I've never been a big nail painter but he likes it and its harmless. I can't "turn him gay."

I painted his nails for him. Wouldn't let him do it himself b/c he would waste it.

Absolutely.  Both my boys painted their toenails at that age.  No big deal.
