When it comes to his son wanting to be princess Elsa for Halloween, Paul Henson is letting it go.
Right on the heels of Target nixing labels that indicate "girl" and "boy"-specific costumes, a Chesapeake, Va., dad posted a photo of his son Caiden in the Frozen dress with a spectacular message:
"Anyone that knows us, knows we generally let Caiden make his own choices, to an extent. Well, he has decided on a Halloween costume. He wants to be Elsa. He also wants me to be Anna," he wrote.
He wanted to shut down the notion that boys can't be princesses and vice versa.
"Keep your masculine bullsh*t and slutty kids costumes," he continued. "Halloween is about children pretending to be their favorite characters. Just so happens, this week his is a princess."
Henson posted the image on Oct. 4. Three days later, it has gotten more than 20,000 shares and has even been been applauded by infamous media personality Perez Hilton. Others are congratulating the father on a job well done as well.
One of Henson's Facebook friends put it perfectly:
"You people are amazing parent. I can only wish my parents had been as accepting and wonderful when I was a kid as you two are. Congratulations on winning the parent award. One day your kids will look back and see you two were a gift from heaven," he wrote.
"We try to be as open minded and supportive as possible," Henson responded.
Now that's how to parent.
