My son is 6 and he's very concerned with how he looks. He will change before school if he feels like the outfit "doesn't match" I do his hair every morning before school and he's constantly fixing it all day long. Just brushing it back over to the side. He likes certain types of shirts he calls them handsome shirts. But he also loves superhero ones. He recently asked me to fix the skin on his nails so it didn't look so ugly and more normal like other kids. It's becoming a big issue with me and his dad who teases him constantly about it. He's a very sensitive boy and I don't see what is wrong with him caring. He also likes to clean and organize (everything has to be in the same place as it was before. Otherwise he panics) he only likes superhero toys and only the imaginext ones to the point where this is all he's played with for the past 3yrs. Is all this behavior normal? Please help me show my husband that it is and our son isn't a "pansy"
