    In celebrity news lately has been the fact that Shiloh Jolie-Pitt has debuted an even shorter hairstyle. For the past few years, Shiloh has been photographed almost exclusively in boy's clothes, with boy hair styles. In the August issue of Vanity Fair, Shiloh's mother Angelina Jolie says this about Shiloh's personal style, “She wants to be a boy. So we had to cut her hair. She likes to wear boys' everything. She thinks she's one of the brothers.”

    So this brought a thought to my mind, should we follow our child's lead in the way they want to dress/act? Or should we instill in them the “classic” gender roles that society has deemed appropriate? I know many people in the internet world have gone as far as calling Jolie and Pitt bad parents for catering to their child's wishes to look and act like a boy. However, I am not so sure that they are doing any “damage” to their daughter by allowing her to choose her own personal direction regarding her style and manner. In fact, I would argue that forbidding her from dressing like a boy would do far more emotional damage than going with the flow. Maybe she will grow out of it, or perhaps she will grow up and continue to emulate “boy” characteristics.

    What do you think about it? Would you allow your child to dress and act opposite of their gender?
