A California dad is promoting his son’s choice of a Little Mermaid doll to drive home an unconditional love message to parents out there with kids who are non gender conforming.
“This little video it’s a reminder of how much we all need to feel embraced and accepted. I’ve been posting short videos of my son, Azai, and I for the past 3 years, since he was one. My one and a half year old, Zuri, is now making cameos,” said Willis. “I see so much negativity being shared through social media that this is my way of bringing a little balance, at least to my friends. To know we’ve touched people beyond our immediate community is both humbling and awesome! My boys fill my wife and I with so much joy that it would be selfish of us not to share them.”
Willis and his wife Nadia made a commitment to raise their two boys outside of traditional rules, and instead, from “natural intuition.”
He added, “When we reach a challenging circumstance, we’re careful not to project the issue on our kids, but instead look within ourselves to see how we can expand our capacity to respond and communicate. And when we hit a wall, instead of using force, we simply default to the power of love. At the point where most kids would be punished, we choose to hug it out. Love is the best medicine!”
Talk back, is this dad on the right track or do you disagree? Keep it civil and smart in the comments.
