From an Eagle Rock mom:
“I have a 4-year-old son who attends a local nursery school where the teachers are caring and compassionate. Lately, my son has been lately experimenting with his clothing. He wants to wear skirts and dresses to school.
“The teachers have been raising their eyebrows at this and asking if anything is wrong at home. I don’t think that’s cool. What do you think I should say to them?
“The same thing happens whenever we hang out in Eagle Rock and my boy is wearing a skirt. I see kids point and giggle (my son, despite his interest in girls’ clothes) looks very much like a boy, with short hair (he wants to grow it long) and more masculine features.
“I think we need a one-size-fits-all comment that is diplomatic but firm and responds to all the haters. What would you say to people who have made it clear that they are not into a little boy wearing girls’ clothing?”
