Encouraging your kid to follow his or heart heart is one thing. Seeing her make a bold and beautiful decision to stay true to herself and rock her own unique style at the young age of 5? That's parenting gold right there.
Meet Ainsley Turner, a young dancer from North Carolina who decided to dress for success for her dance school's special "princess week" celebration. While the other little girls in her class dressed in their frilliest, prettiest princess dresses, Ainsley went her own way, in an outfit choice that has everyone talking:
