When dropping their kids at daycare, parents have a million things to worry about. Their diapers, for example. Or formula. Or a change of clothes. Whether or not their child is wearing gender-specific clothing, however, shouldn’t be one of them. But some Danish daycare teachers, however, think otherwise.
Recently, Steve Rold turned to reddit to share an experience that caught him and his wife Jessica completely off-guard.
“A few of the older teachers at the daycare made suggestions to my wife that we should think about dressing our girl in more dresses,” Steve told Babble. “Or putting bows in her hair so that the other kids would know that she was a girl.”
“We never bothered to find out the genders of our children ahead of time,” he added. “Most of what my daughter wears at the moment are hand-me-downs we bought before we knew our son was even going to be a boy.”
In response, Jessica has decided to troll the teachers in the best possible way. However, that doesn’t mean the couple felt disrespected. “We weren’t really offended at all,” Steve clarified. “If someone calls my daughter a boy that’s fine, how should they know?”
