Re: Boys and nail polish
I let my boys do whatever they want as long as they aren't harming themselves or others. We don't worry about gender stereotypes. Kearnan has both of his ears pierced, Tharen has one. Tharen is completely over the moon for Hello Kitty and I buy him t-shirts with his favorite character (and sheets, and stickers ect ect). They both have long hair and Tharen likes to paint his nails. I do not allow finger nail painting only because he chews his nails and I don't like him eating nail polish. We have not had a lot of trouble with bullying but my boys are homeschooled. They are exposed to other children through TKD and roller derby but I will say that the vast majority of their friends are very good about it all.
