Realtives and Siblings

How does your family react to your gender creative child? Are they accepting? Do they embrace your child's uniqueness? How do your other children feel about their gender creative sibling? Are they compassionate? Are they protective? I would love to know your experiences!!! I am working on a post about mine....


  1. My family couldn't handle children adopted from another country -- a gender creative child is not something they can even fathom. It's their loss.

  2. My 10-year old daughter wants to be a boy. She has lived like one for 7 years now. Until now I always believed she'd turn around once the hormones would kick in. Only recently I started to realise that this could be permanent. How my family reacted:
    My husbund finds it very difficult. My son (he is younger than my daughter) doesn't understand. He is 7 years old and has told my daughter he accepts her for who she is. My parents and sister are VERY supportive. So are the teachers at school. Because she has always looked, and acted, like a boy the surprise isn't very big.
    So far, in our family everybody is emotional about it, but we also wish my daughter the best. And we do it as a family so no-one stands alone.
