Halloween can be a tough time for parents -- how do you let kids express themselves without going too far? So when Paul Henson's recent Facebook post went viral, we couldn't help but cheer.

Paul, 28, and his son Caiden were shopping for the perfect costume, and though he tried his best, Caiden didn't like any of the options his dad picked out. He had his eyes set on one costume in particular, and that costume involved a tulle-filled dress.

Instead of trying to convince him otherwise, Paul handled his son's choice like a champ.

Here's his caption for the photo, which he posted on Facebook (edited for language):

"Anyone that knows us, knows we generally let Caiden make his own choices, to an extent. Well, he has decided on a Halloween costume. He wants to be Elsa. He also wants me to be Anna. Game on. Keep your masculine bulls#$% and sl&*%y kids costumes, Halloween is about children pretending to be their favorite characters. Just so happens, this week his is a princess."

You're our hero, Paul!
