Now a days, parents are more likely to buy thier little boys kitchen sets and dolls to play with if the boy asks for them and if a little girl likes GI Joes, so be it, she gets a GI Joe...
But when your children..example your boy, starts dressing like a girl, and it becomes clear he might be transgender...what do you do? How do you react?
My thoughts.. I have no clue. Being gay has become more and more acceptable but transgender??? I don't want my child to be humiliated and teased. But then again, when they grow older, they will probably face the same ridicule. So do you prepare them for it now? I don't see the need to make your child feel dirty b/c of the choice. I think as a parent it needs to be explained to your child b/c they are probably a bit confused about their feelings.
But when do you start?
I have a brother that is gay and I am not going to say it was easy to hear, but I was thankful that he was no longer living a lie and I was comforted by the fact that he felt good enough in his skin to show the world who he really was. It was my fear of the world's perception of him that worried me and how others in my family might react.
