Standing up

5 November 2010

Just read something I had to pass along – a mom in Missouri wrote a post about her preschool son dressing up as Daphne from Scooby Doo for Halloween. It’s a brilliant story about standing up for your kids, but it’s also about saving childhood for free imagination. Grade school is already a stinging awakening for kids about what is “normal” and what is socially acceptable. But I think we as parents could save preschool for childhood fun.

When he was four, my son dressed up as Dory from Finding Nemo. I didn’t even know Dory was a girl until someone asked me. To which I replied with amazement, “It’s a FISH.”

This post has justifiably gone viral, and apparently the mom got a million hits in three days. It’s really worth your time. Click here:
