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?
