my son started wearing his sisters' clothes around the house when he was 4 and when it didnt seem to "go away" at age 8 we visited a psychologist. she suggested we let him continue to express himself at home but I wouldn't let him wear dresses, etc. to school or out of the house (for the most part). he seemed fine with this and I just took it as a side of his personality he liked to express. but as he got to age 11 or 12, he wanted his own clothes and I reluctantly allowed this. (still just at home). now I can see that he is identifying more and more as a girl. when I ask him if he wants to be a girl, he still says no, but I'm not sure he was being honest. When he started experimenting with make up at 13, I bit my tongue and helped him even taking him to have his ears pierced. most of his school friends don't know about this. He's started asking if he can wear his girl's clothes and makeup out of the house. This terrifies me. We're going on vacation in a few weeks and he keeps asking if he can wear his girls clothes on vacation since we'll be out of state away from anyone we know. I'm the most liberal free-spirited person you can imagine, but this really scares me and I don't know what to do. What do I tell him?Answer Question
