Compassionate Father Puts On A Skirt In Support Of Dress-Wearing Son

| Filed under: InspirationPerezcious ParentingCute and Contemporary Families

What an amazing father.

Nils Pickert from Germany has a son who likes a certain kind of fashion that unfortunately, would still not be acceptable for some parents… Even in 2012.

His five-year-old son "likes to wear dresses," according to the proud dad. Buuut, some people in his small town aren't too happy with his son's fashion choice - the stares have come a lot faster and a lot harder.

Here's what the dad said:

"He didn't make friends in doing that in Berlin already and after a lot of contemplation I had only one option left: To broaden my shoulders for my little buddy and dress in a skirt myself."

Although, at first, even his dad's dress couldn't help ease his son's nerves. But when a lady on the street couldn't stop staring at the two and walked into a pole, the dad said his son couldn't wait to get back in that dress.

Here's what he said:

"My son was roaring with laughter. And the next day he fished out a dress from the depth of his wardrobe. At first only for the weekend. Later also for nursery-school."

And do other kids bully the brave little boy? Does the son still dress up?

Here's what the dad said:

"And what's the little guy doing by now? He's painting his fingernails. He thinks it looks pretty on my nails, too. He's simply smiling, when other boys (and it's nearly always boys) want to make fun of him and says, 'You only don't dare to wear skirts and dresses because your dads don't dare to either.' That's how broad his own shoulders have become by now. And all thanks to daddy in a skirt."

Now that's some might fine parenting.
