A proud mother has posted her response to a stranger who mocked her son for wearing an Elsa dress.

Haylee Bazen of Cambridge had let her three-year-old son Zackary dress up as his favourite Frozen princess so he could perform ‘Let It Go’ in class.

However, Ms Bazen says a complete stranger approached them while they were waiting for the bus to criticize her parenting skills.

She took to Facebook to write: “To the lady at the bus stop who felt the need to interrupt my conversation with my son.

“I am NOT sorry you didn’t like how he was dressed nor am I sorry that you didn’t like our discussion topic of who our favourite Disney Princess is (Snow White obviously).

“Zackary is my 3 year old son and he can be who he wants to be.

“Today he was a Disney princess and YES I did send him to school like that.

“Why? Beacuse that’s what he wanted to wear, because he wanted to show his teachers and friends his Elsa dress, because he wanted to sing ‘Let it Go’ for show and tell, because he doesn’t understand the gender stereotypes YOU think he should conform to, but most importantly because he is awesome!”

She added: “He plays with cars and dolls, princesses and pirates. He rides his scooter or pushes his pram.

“He wears zombie face painting or lip stick and if he choose to wear a dress he can!

“So next time you see us, dressed as a princess or cowboy, keep you disapproving stares to yourself and unless you want to tell him how great he looks keep your poisonous words to yourself too.

“Your the one that should be embarrassed to leave the house not us!”
