LOL, NO just because he wants to wear nail polish and dress like a ballerina does not make him gay. Would it matter anyway? But no. Clothing does not make someone gay. It is completely normal for kids wot want to do what all the other kids are doing. What kid doesn't want pretty nail polish and want to dress up in cute tutus?



Do the girls ever play with trucks? Or cars? Does that concern you that they might be lesbian? Probably not.

I think he probably just wants to do what the 'big kids' are doing. It's all about imitation at that age. Maybe have your husband take him fishing or play sports with him once in awhile; 'guy' things. I wouldn't worry, though, and I wouldn't make a big deal or give him a complex about it. He just wants to be apart of the group.

Perfectly normal.



And on a side note.... preschool is awesome for little boys who are surrounded by girls at home cuz they get a chance to 'hang out with the guys' as well.

Completely normal not that it should matter if he ends up being gay in the future.

I agree with Claudia he just want's to join in with bigger childrens games. Doesn't mean he going to be gay. When he older he probably find it embarrassing that he did play aong :D
