My dd has a very large dress up collection of necklaces, bracelets, tiaras, tutus, and princess dresses. She asked me to take her things out so she could play. So I did. I helped her put on a pretty tutu, and shoes, and necklaces. Her little brother stood by looking left out, I don't know why I just didn't think of him when I was getting her dress up stuff. So he picked up my dd tutu, and siad "please" and put it on him. Hes such a little guy that he ran around in it looking everything but graceful like dd does. lol Stomping around like a little man. Dh is on the couch and looks up and this strange look gets on his face.I tell him Stevie wanted to dress up also, and so I put him on a tutu, I said next time we are out lets get him some dress up stuff. He looks at me then later hops up and leaves says hes going to the store. He comes back with a fire man costume and says "no more tutus for Stevie. Anywho I didn't realize that the tutu was such a big deal to him. If your son was standing in front of you holding a tutu would would you say "no your a boy". When hes only one and doesn't understand anyhow or just put him on the tutu and make a mental to get him some dress up clothes. SO what would you hae done?

Personal power is the life force within everyone. It is the use of our inner energy to influence the quality of life for ourselves and for our children. Personal power is not our physical strength, but rather the drive to accomplish things, the will to love, the energy and commitment to create, to change, to build and to raise healthy, caring children.

We pretty much follow gender roles in this house.  I don't see anything wrong with putting your son in a tutu but I personally wouldn't do it.

I'd let him rock a tutu. I'd get some camo ribbon, black/green/tan tulle, and make one myself. When they're that little and innocent it really doesn't mean anything other than that things don't have gender assignments to them yet. Once he's older if he wanted to wear it I'd be able to explain that other people might not accept it, but he can do what he wants...

At a year old I don't see the big deal. Now if he was older I would get him a few boy things.
