    Sorry to hear that. That's really sad.

    While it is not likely to be sudden, kids are much more able to cope than you think. I wasn't paying attention, but there was someone on NPR last week who has written a book on her dad who largely I'd this. She was not devastated. But, that is too small a sample. Do we have any studies showing child can't deal with thus?

    Do we really need a study to tell us that this would be difficult to deal with? I know if my dad suddenly became a woman, I'd feel pretty messed up.

    Difficult? I think devastated was the word. But, yes. Like everything, I suspect it is all in how it is done. Kids are very adaptable. If done with love, reason, honesty, and respect by all, it likely wouldn't be difficult at all, let alone devastating.

    I would be devastated and feel betrayed. You are being completely dishonest by saying it wouldn't be difficult at all. That is just despicable.

    Not exactly what I said. I said it would depend on how it was handled. Would you concede that everyone might not feel what you THINK you would feel?

    I think that a child who wouldn't be upset by this to at least SOME degree, would be quite rare. Do you think they would be happy about it? That they would understand this at all? A lot of adults don't even really understand it, even the experts don't REALLY understand it.

    I don't think it would be all that rare. Kids are very adaptable. Mostly all they need to understand us that their parent lives them. They seldom carry our preconceptions. So, they have no context that requires understanding anything. The younger it happens, the less there is for them. The later, the easier to reason with.
