Have Mental Health Questions? Ask a Psychiatrist Online
Thank you Bonnie for responding. I have seen and read a bit on this boy. I've also read hundreds of articles and comments from parents. It just seems I think if I don't make such a big deal of it maybe it will pass. It's hard to read the comments from parents on threads because many of their children are younger, have had shorter phases or have sisters. I'm wondering if it's because he emulates me. He's usually with me more than his father because he works 3pm-11pm. He does go to preschool and his teachers have not seen anything too unusual, however he does seem to be the one to like the girl stuff than any other boy. Do you know what age I might be able to wait till until having him see a therapist? I'm thinking is there an age, where a boy should become a boy by society's standards? I don't want to put pressure on him too early as that might confuse him even more.
Thank you Bonnie. So far so good at school. Teacher have been supportive and have been redirecting him to a variety of activities. The children have not made fun of him as far as I'm aware so that's a good thing. Thanks again!
