Advice for my teen

(1/2) > >>

Hi everyone,

A little background about me, I am a mother (aged 48) from the U.K., I have an older son (David) 18 and a younger son (Luke) 13.

Recently, David has had a talk with me saying that he has been very unhappy and feels he is living a lie, expressing he feels he is the wrong gender.

It did shock me a slightly at first, but I do totally support him and I want to show my support to him. All I want is for him to be happy and I told him I would accept and support any decision he makes.

I am really coming on here so I can offer support to him, so I can educate myself and so that we (as a family) can offer him advice on his new life!

As this is new to me, I do apologise if I seem ignorant, as this is not my intention at all.

Thanks for reading everyone, love, Nicky.
