If I ever become a dad….I hope I’m as cool as this guy. It is amazing what happens when you just let kids be comfortable in their skin and their own unique forms of expression. By also modeling this to help them when they are being bullied or teased will help them emotionally and physically as they age. With supportive parents, we can then better understand that there are a lot of mean people out there, but who you are is what is perfect about you. We can all be unique and in touch with our own emotions, or we can try to conform to something we aren’t, making us out-of-touch with ourselves and unable to create life-long, intimate relationships with others.
