A dad who let his son wear a dress for Halloween has a great parenting message everyone can learn from.

Paul Hanson of Virginia let his son Caiden get a dress from Disney’s Frozen.


Caiden wanted to dress up as Elsa from the popular film for Halloween this year, and rather than causing a fuss, Hanson went along with it.

He has even agreed to dress up as Anna for Halloween.

Hanson wrote on Facebook, “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,” he went on.
