I think, this title is horrible, but I cannot put it in better words.
My five year old is not "age appropriately" in his gender role. (this sounds horrible again).
He loves dolls, glitter, pink clothing, skirts, wants to go to preschool in "hello kitty" dresses, "borrows" his sister's glitter shoes for school. Loves Fairy stories, his favorite movie of all times is "Emily STrawberry"
My sister is gay and an "early childhood development person" (i don't know the translation of what she does, and she thinks he is not clear in his role at all. She says, a "normal" boy of his age would be VERY boyish and would even try to deny all girlish things. (I guess there is a range though)
So, now my question. How do I raise a boy who could be gay? I know that every boy "could" be gay, and that they don't need to be girlish or anything. I just have the feeling, that he is not really like other boys (in more than one way :) ) and I kind of want him to know that he is perfect as he is, even if he is different.
I don't really know how to behave here. I don't know any books about boys who like to be girls or are gay and maybe I am way to early with all this.
I hope I did not confuse you all. English is not my first language, and I don't really know how to explain my worries. Even in german.
