Paul Henson recently posted an image of his son in an Elsa costume on his Facebook page, that image has been shared over 24,000 times and we can see why.

The Dad posted the image with the caption:

“Anyone that knows us, knows we generally let Caiden make his own choices, to an extent. Well, he has decided on a Halloween costume. He wants to be Elsa. He also wants me to be Anna. Game on.
Keep your masculine bullshit and slutty kids costumes, Halloween is about children pretending to be their favorite characters. Just so happens, this week his is a princess.”

We LOVE that this little guy gets to be whoever he chooses and that this Dad encourages his son to be who he wants to be for Halloween – no matter the gender stereotypes. Commenters on the post agree with some saying things like “parenting done right!!!”, “Good job”, “respect for you man” and LOTS of people saying “I love this!”.

  • Awesome dad!! He reminds me of Hubby because he always empowers our kids and supports them even from this young age.


  • He’s adorable! Well done on his dad!!


  • A little bit strange to look at, but good on dad for letting his son be whatever he chooses to be


  • You can be whatveer you want to be..


  • Love that the little boy has chosen to be whatever he wants to be, without any stereotyping influence – not so sure about the father’s comments, he seems a bit angry.


  • Oh yes I love this story – great parenting, just let the kids be themselves at special event.


  • Very cute. Thanks for sharing.


  • That’s fantastic! Our youngest is just as happy playing tea sets and dolls, as she is playing cars and mud pies. Two extremes and everything in between makes for happy, contented kids in our household.


  • You go Dad. I love that he’s giving his son the freedom to dress as he wants to. Fantastic.


  • yeah he is just a kid, no big deal, he is just wanting to play


  • Just gorgeous. Great dad and great response.


  • Lots of little boys are getting into frozen costumes anna/elsa


  • This is such a refreshing attitude. I absolutely love the freedom the dad is giving his son to express himself as he wants. There is wayyyyyy too much gender stereotyping in this world. We need more parents like this! :)

    • yes it is a brave attitude to have especially coming from a male.


  • In this day & age any Person can wear Anything.
    I think this has greatly been helped due to Cosplay & ages ago Women like Ellen didn’t want to conform to wear a dress wearing suits.


  • what a sweetheart!
