Honestly, when my brother and I were kids, I would make him believe he was adopted about once a month, my parents told him it was fake every time but he would still believe it the next month. Kids are amazingly gullible, plus I don't think he was crying because he thought being a girl wasn't as good as being a boy, I really wouldn't like to wake up one day and realise I became a guy. Depending on how old your daughter is, I wouldn't be too hard on her, explain that what she said distraught her brother but that's it. While it's very important that parents should be honest with their children so they know they can trust them, I believe kids should sometimes be lied to by other people to learn not to blindly trust everyone

I don't think so. It's says "I had to console by bawling son AND explain to him..." So I think that he was already crying before she explained it to him. So crying because he thought he'd turn into a girl. I don't get why op would be disappointed in her son though. He's only 6 and he trusts and believes his sister so it's understandable that he would believe her. A lot of kids have been told something similar and believed the lie and gone crying to their parents; it's fairly normal. I'd say be disappointed in the sister for being so mean to her brother (and have a talk with her about bugging her brother), but no reason to be disappointed in the 6 yr old son.

Why would you be disappointed with your son? He's six years old. He doesn't think women as a whole are inferior to men; he just doesn't want to turn into one. I'm sure the idea of turning into a guy would be just as traumatizing to a six-year-old girl.

Haven't you ever heard the taunt Girls rule and boys drool? Or the song Anything You Can Do I Can Do Better? At a young age each gender thinks hey are better than the other.
