The mom of Dyson Kilodavis, aka “Princess Boy” writes book about him

Dyson Kilodavis: “Princess Boy”

Dyson Dilodavis, a five-year-old boy, is called “The Princess Boy” — and he and his momappeared on The TODAY Show on January 3rd.  In talking with host Meredith Vieira, Dyson’s mom, Cheryl Kilodavis, told about how Dyson likes dresses and tutus and the color pink and sparkly things.  His mom is getting lots of attention because of it and will likely get a best-selling book out of it.

Kilodavis wrote the book  My Princess Boy: A Mom’s Story About a Young Boy Who Loves to Dress Up.  She says it is being used by schools as an educational, antibullying tool.  I wonder what Dyson will think of all of this when he gets a little older.

So what do you think?  Is the mother legitimately trying to stop bullying, or is she exploiting her 5-year-old son?

    What’s the big deal? The child is FIVE. Five year olds have an amazing, boundless imagination. Who is he hurting by pretending to be a princess?

    Little boys wanting to dress like girls is not exactly unusual behavior. My own little brother loved wearing our mom’s clothes and jewelry, trying on my dress-up clothes, and playing with Barbie. His pediatrician explained that since the people he loved most (mom and us sisters) were girls, it was only natural that he would admire and look up to girls. No one made a big deal about it, and he grew out of it all by himself. Now he’s a fully functional adult man. He’s married to a wonderful woman, has a baby on the way, and is finishing his residency at the end of the year. No permanent damage done.
