Kids learn from their environments and as they get older, the influences really set in.
Kids are incredible. Ellen had a pair on her show: One, for having the pride and confidence to be himself, and the other for standing up for what is right and for encouraging others to do the same when his friend was being picked on. New hats and a great experience are coming their way and for all the right reasons!
Thanks for reminding the adults what really matters, boys!
