These pink shoes haunt me.
My 5-year-old son loved all things pink.
He loved Skye, the pink-clad girl dog, from Paw Patrol. He slept with a pink plush tiger and Jigglypuff remains his favorite Pokémon.
My husband and I had always encouraged his individuality. Then, he started Kindergarten.
My son struggled to assimilate. His behavior resulted in weekly communication from teachers and after-school caregivers.
