I read a blog post this morning that I thought was simply wonderful. It gave a terrific perspective from a mom of a young boy who loves to dance. Though his parents have enrolled him in a variety of sports, dancing remains his passion and has shaped his dream.
Read “If my son wanted to dance, I would kill myself” to see how one mother defended her son against the ignorance of another parent.
Whether you have a son or a daughter, as parents we need to realize that the words we speak into our children’s heads will be the words that lift up or tear down their hearts as they grow into adults. Each child is uniquely created and gifted and they can become anything their hearts desire. We need to stop allowing society to dictate what is appropriate for our children. We must be their encouragement and support.
