About his name. About his speech. About his inability to keep up in class. And now, the thing that scares me, about his sexuality. He's five for goodness sake! He made the mistake of trying to be himself around his 'friends' and now, today, he's home from school because he cried so hard about having to go back. He likes to be called Daphne. He likes to play with girl toys, wear girl clothes. He begged to have his ears pierced and then got ballsy and wore sparkly, pink studs one day.- He asked me to take his earrings out and not to replace them. When asked about his future occupation, he said he wants to be a mommy -a GIRL- when he grows up. So he's got four things stacked against him, none of them changeable, and he never wants to go to school again.
I need advice. Please. KIND advice.

Take a look at this link and the book. I saw this little boy and his mom on one of the morning TV shows. I wonder if you got the book and had your son's teacher read it to the class it might help. At a minimum, talk to his teacher and see how you can work together to help your son. hug
