Best Dad Ever & 3-Year-Old-Son Are Dressing Up as Anna & Elsa for Halloween (PHOTOS)

3-year-old boy elsaPaul Henson is a cool dad, and it's not just because he has tattoos and is into skateboarding -- he's letting his 3-year-old son Caiden be Frozen's Elsa for Halloween. And at his son's request, he is going as Anna. Together, they are squashing those gender stereotypes -- kids can be whatever they want to be and embrace life just as we all should. The photo of Caiden trying on his Elsa costume is nothing short of incredible and sends the right message.

If my son wants to be a princess, he will be a princess. If my daughter wants to be Batman, she can be Batman. We owe it to our children to never discourage their individuality. We need to support our kids in their decisions -- big and small. Just like these parents are. I can't wait to see their Elsa and Anna on Halloween.
