My son is about to turn 4 in about 2 weeks. He has recently started pretending that he is a girl a lot. He pretends that he is Rapunzel (he loves the movie) or Jessie from Toy Story. He does have a Rapunzel toy also that he plays with a lot. He also plays with superheroes (boys and girl ones) and pretends he his Thor at times. My husband is really bothered by this, and I keep trying to tell him it is a phase, but he is starting to put doubts in my head. I know he is afraid of how his family will react because I heard his mom telling our son that he can't play with Rapunzel because she is a girl toy. I guess I'm just trying to find out if this is normal.
