Parents of ADHD Preteens
daughter shocks!! how to help.
Today has been very shocking! We were at my grandmas house and my 11 year old just out of the blue asks me if she can be a lesbian.WOW! was not expecting that. I told her that if that is what she wanted i would be there. But i told her right now she really doesnt have to worry about dating a girl or boy.
So then we were talking about haircuts and she said she wanted to get her haircut.took her to get it done. i knew she wanted short and i am ok with it. Her sister was telling her that she looked like a boy and I told her to be nice and my daughter said thats ok mom I like it. I have never seen her so happy and have so much self esteem it was crazy. I guess she has always really felt like she was a boy and has never said anything.
I don’t have any problems with it just really shocked.
Is this a phase? how to deal as a parent???
