This Dad Has the Best Response to His Son Wanting to Buy a 'Little Mermaid' Doll


If you spend enough time on the Internet, you’ll read so many stories about parenting gone wrong that you’ll think...

This isn’t one of them. A California dad, Mikki Willis, recorded a video where he explains that his 4-year-old son, Azai, recently got two of the same toy for his birthday. They went to the store to exchange the duplicate, and Azai picked out an Ariel doll.

“How do you think a dad feels when his son wants to get this?” Willis asks the camera, holding up the Little Mermaid doll while Azai smiles in the background.


Here’s how this dad feels about it:


“I let my boys choose their life,” he says, before going on to promise Azai and his other son, Zuri, that he will “love you and accept you no matter what life you choose.” No wonder the commenters are all saying he’s the best dad ever!

"My job as daddy is to provide a safe playing field for my boys to play whatever game they choose, or better yet, create their own game," Willis wrote on his Facebook. "I trust that by the time they realize the world isn't as accepting as mommy and daddy they'll have such a solid foundation that nothing will shake their stance to fully, and unabashedly be themselves."
