Dad Shares Why He Encouraged His Son to Continue Wearing Nail Polish to School Despite Bullies Taunting Him

Dad Shares Why He Encouraged His Son to Continue Wearing Nail Polish to School Despite Bullies Taunting Him

A dad has shared an uplifting story on Twitter that has both angered and inspired his followers. Writing under the name Daddy Files, the anonymous dad went into bat for his son, fighting back against gender norms and criticising the parents of his child’s bullies who are perpetuating the notion that only girls can wear nail polish.

He writes about the lessons he taught his sons after his 5-year-old son opted to wear “badass” nail polish to school one day, but came home devastated due to the unkind reactions of his peers.

His Twitter thread has been liked and shared thousands of times since he shared his posts, and with good reason. It is just brilliant. Have a read for yourself:

Before too long, others were sharing pictures of themselves or of their loved ones — all wonderful, kind men who have painted their own nails in support of little Sam.

How utterly beautiful. More time needs to be spent teaching children to be empathetic, to be kind to other humans, to celebrate differences in each other instead of ridiculing them as a default.

Way to go, dad!
