Hello, I am a parent of a pre-teen boy who is starting to ask questions surrounding gender. He continues to identify as male, but is wondering what that means and if he is really a female. We have always had a close, open, communicative relationship and I am so happy that he trusts me enough to talk to me about the things he is thinking and feeling. But I just don’t have all the answers for him on this topic! I’ve told him that he is accepted and beautiful no matter who he is, but beyond that, I am not equipped right now to answer some of the questions he has.
I joined this forum to ask those questions and take some of the answers back to my son so that he can figure things out more easily.
Also, in the event that my son decides that he is my daughter after all, what advice can you give me as a parent? What do you wish that your parents had done differently? How can I best support?
