  • If he is, just accept it. I don't think you should encourage any way. Just let him know you love him no matter what and if that's what he chooses then so be it.

  • Oh, and I know what it's like to have a big secret and trying to hide it from everyone. It was terribly emotionally scarring. Don't make him feel like he needs to do the same thing. It'll help him in the long run.

  • Maybe get him to see a therapist.

  • Definitely talk to him!! I had a very good friend that did that in high school-same as your son--not all the way, only under garments. His parents were jackasses anyway, but he committed suicide right after senior year. Just make sure he knows that you are not JUGDING him, only CONCERN about his needs. A counselor/therapist may help as well. SUPPORT, and not critical jugdment are the key to understanding what's going on with him. I wish you guys the best!
