I am a software developer in southern California. My favorite languages are Python and Scheme.

Additionally, I'm an avid amateur cook and baker, and particularly enjoy combining interesting/unusual ingredients into favorite recipes to create something new.

comment How can I get my son to stay in bed at bedtime?
Just an update: ultimately this behavior went away as he got older. The advice in the accepted answer, however, was very helpful while the problem was going on.

comment What is a positive way to handle a boy who acts like a girl?
Agree, but it seems to be overly emphasized here, where I think what should be most emphasized is that it IS too early to tell.

Also I wish I could upvote this 3 times or more, to me it is 100% the correct answer as I observed the exact same thing.

comment What is a positive way to handle a boy who acts like a girl?
I think its too early to be saying "maybe he's gender confused... maybe he's gay" etc. The only one that seems reasonable is "maybe its a phase he'll grow out of." For some actual evidence (albeit anecdotal) see @Rory's answer. Like him, and the OP, my son went through the same phase at around that age (with no sister, but a very close girlfriend who he played with all the time and thought of as his sister). 2 years later he likes toy guns and trucks and star wars storm troopers. This is pretty normal.

.. was it that you discovered later that you were different from the other boys, or that it was just a phase? In any case I think this question applied to an 8 or 9 year old is completely different from a 3 year old. This is quite normal at 3 and is no indication of future sexual orientation whatsoever. I think its just an indication that he spends lots of time with his sister, and he'll probably change is mind when he spends more time with other boys in preschool.
