The reason this dad let his son do his makeup is just perfect

Joseph McCormick April 3, 2016

When this guy’s son asked him if he could put makeup on him, he knew exactly what to say.

Yes, of course!

CJ’s dad wrote a blog post titled ‘Real Dads Let Their Sons Do Their Makeup’, explaining why it was important to let his son practice on him.

He wrote: “A couple of years ago, C.J. asked if I would allow him to do my makeup. Of course I said yes. Why wouldn’t I? Why wouldn’t I want to be a part of something that brings joy to my son’s life?

“If I said no to something as trivial as allowing him to paint my face, what would I be teaching him?

“I’d be teaching him that playing dress-up or giving his dad a makeover is something to be ashamed of or something to hide. I don’t want to teach him that.”

Going on, the dad said: “allowing your children to be themselves is very important”

“It’s just something we can do together that shows him that his dad loves spending time with him no matter what we are doing”, he went on.

Brilliant parenting!
