Hoping to find other families with young children who have navigated this issue.

my 5 year old reacted not super well to my presentation and my in-laws got involved when he visited them and everyone frames it as a “problem” that they need to solve, including my wife much of the time (I.e. that I should not transition but need mental health help and/or antidepressants, or “God” and “Religion” so I can “revert)—my therapist advised boundaries with the in-laws, and my wife and I agreed to find a child psychologist to help our son; but it’s kind of a two step forward three steps back and then a half step to the left kind of experience as far as my transition…

 

That said, my wife is becoming more supportive; but there is just so; so much resistance…any help with how to approach so my son can adjust well would be much appreciated!

Be very calm when approaching your son. Find a person who can explain to him on his level, so he can understand better on what is going on. I was in his position before for 13 years, I had a gay uncle but he was my mentor, and still is, even though I haven’t seen or heard from him for ages, but that doesn’t mean I don’t love him. He explained to me how things were to my level. I am not gay, but I crossdress. Like ms. Jenny I am here to email you. My name is Timothy Glenn Skrabanek, I want to make as many friends as possible. If you need further help, post more questions on this site, and I promise to respond back. Peace be with you always and forever! Oh, for inspiration on you tube look up b.e.r. You’re the One music video. I promise it will help. Later, hopeful one.
