Is Your Son a "Sensitive Thug"?

Is Your Son a "Sensitive Thug"?

Boys will be boys. I didn't understand that saying until I had a son. And, while my lil guy is a tough tot when he's flying off park structures or banging toys together, he's also the sweetest kid I know.

Hollywood's golden girl, Gwyneth Paltrow had a similar sentiment about her lil man Moses when she stopped by The Late Show with David Letterman.

The actress said her two-year-old thrashes the hell out of older sister, Apple's toys and if he can inflict pain in the process then it's all the better. That said, because he's also incredibly sweet they call him their "sensitive thug" — a term taken from a Jay-Z song.

Is this the definition of your boy?

My son can be a little terror but he's also very generous with the hugs and kisses when someone is sad or hurt.

if he was doing the same thing to gwennie's things that he is to apple's would she still have that sweet little nick name for him? a broken academy award might not be as endearing as a broken barbie doll.i can't stand that "he's all boy" mentality. call it what it is; he's a 2 year old having a tantrum. and btw after 2 years old the kid is just a "brat".

yeah, that is a great way to put it- if he wasn't so darn cute and charming, I'd have to keep him locked up-lol! No, he has his moments but he can also be very sensitive.
