    Really so what if the child is upset. Children get upset about a lot of stuff. Moving for parents work being one.

    Yeah, until they found out it is a lie. Then things get exciting, but not very entertaining.

    When I was under 11 years old, it probably wouldn't have bothered me at all. (I don't think...I mean, who could know for sure?) It all depends on how it's presented....Tommy, daddy has decided he's sort of uncomfortable in his own skin. Do you sort of know what that means? That he's not happy with who he is. He says he's always felt like he's a lady and now, finally, he's going to do something about it. He still loves you just as much. He's the same person he always was. But he's going to have some things done that will change him to look more like a lady." I just don't think a child that age (maybe slightly younger) would question it too much. As long as nothing much changed with his relationship with his dad/now mom, I believe he'd be fine.

    Now, contrast that with what mom's more LIKELY to say, "Your dad is nutz!!! He thinks he's mommy now, so he's going to have surgery done so he can pretend he's a girl!! Jesus H. Christ!!"

    Much like when your kid falls down and looks up at you to see if he should cry or not.

    Just my humble opinion.

    Anecdotal contributes very little to discussions, as does posting pure opinion without backing.
    You need an expert to tell you that parents want grandchildren?

    Yes, and parents should avoid moving after the child reaches a certain age.

    A boy looks up to his father as a role model, as an example. It would CERTAINLY be devastating. If you can't adlmit that, then don't even quote me anymore. I have no interest in speaking with someone so dishonest.
    So mean being torment by others is a problem. That happens regardless. And we shouldn't excuse it.

    But children don't know roles. They learn them. I'm saying it is all in how it is handled. It doesn't have to be devastating. You're reacting far too emotionally. Nothing I'm saying warrants it. We all don't react the same way. Different circumstances and approaches illicit different responses. I'm saying it doesn't have to be as bad as you're suggesting.

    Apparently it upsets people to have an opinion different than theirs. This has been enlightening.
