Dad Rocks Matching Elsa Dress To Support Son Who Loves 'Frozen'

When we watch our kids grow up, we always want them to feel safe and accepted in our homes. The world can be a cruel and mean place sometimes, so making sure that we create a positive home to foster independence and growth is something all parents set out to do.

Scott Stuart is the type of dad who does exactly that.

The 36-year-old dad has a six-year-old son who fell in love with Elsa from the Frozen film series — and not just because she is beautiful. His son, Colin, loves Elsa's look so much, he wanted to dress up as her.

While some fathers would push Colin in a different direction, Scott decided to take a different approach.

When Colin said he wanted to dress up as Elsa to go see Frozen 2 in the theater, his dad decided that he just wouldn't let Colin do so alone. And, instead, he dressed up as Elsa with him.

Scott shared a video on TikTok of the two dressed up as Elsa together.

The dad also shares videos and photos of him and his son on social media dressed up in various princess outfits, sharing that it is "confidence" that makes them comfortable in what they wear.

The video on TikTok of the two hand-in-hand headed to the movie theater has now gone viral.

Many TikTok users loved seeing a father who was so supportive of everything, even things that society may frown upon. The father says that he looks to support anything his son may want to do.

Scott said that one day, Colin had come home upset after someone at school taunted him for loving Elsa.

"That day I resolved that I would always support the things that he loves, even if they challenged my (or society’s) expectations of him," the father told Cafe Mom.

Scott shared that Colin loves everything from Spider-Man to Disney princesses.

"Since then he has loved a whole lot of traditionally male characters like Batman and Spider-Man, but his favorite characters are princesses and queens like Elsa, Anna, Belle, and Rapunzel," he said.

The father also said that these kind of moments are "pivotal" for parents.

"I feel that in a moment like that, we can either teach our kids to run away from who they are and what they love to try and please other people, or teach them to have the courage to be themselves," he shared.

And, surprisingly, Scott said many dads and people in the movie theater that day were nothing but accepting.

"It became an adventure we were planning for weeks and he had the time of his life.

The reactions from people at the cinema were overwhelmingly positive, with other dads coming up and telling me they wished they had done the same, that it was awesome, etc," he told Cafe Mom.

Scott said that nothing means more than fostering the ability of Colin to be himself.

"People could look at this video and see a child having the courage to be themselves, and know that if they have to courage to do the same, there will be someone who will stand with them, too," he shared.
