Hey there @CSculptor,
Thanks for giving us an update You've given some fabulous advice on how to approach the situation. Have you spoken to your daughter about how she's going with her anxiety and therapy-wise?
@DeerPark_123 thank you for sharing your story with us It sounds like you are a wonderful and supportive parent to your daughter. It can definitely be difficult to have these conversations with your kids, especially when they're young. It's fantastic that you want to do the right thing, but it's true that sometimes there's no one right way to handle things. Do you think having someone else talk to your daughter about these things might be helpful? It's unfortunate that conversations with her aren't going well but perhaps having someone else talk to her might help her understand. What do you think?

We are 2 years into this journey. She has had a girlfriend, a boyfriend and now she is with a trans girl-boy. I let them go out and do what they want within reason. Being gay I wasn't too happy but I got thrown out so that was definitely not my road to follow. Society is insular and rather small minded when it comes to different.
It took a few mths for my girl to realise what I said was absolutely true - we are a minority. I am a very easy going parent and rarely say no due to very strict boundaries from birth. I don't get the pansexual and all the words that go with our teens these days and I don't try too. My job is to support and pick up the emotional stress when they break up. It is what it is and there is no topic in my household off bounds. That is not too say parenting different is easy whatsoever.

I've read your comments. My daughter now refers to herself and him and my son. He also stated that he is "Pan". Loud and proud. He is very much out there and afraid to be himself. He currently has a partner. I should mention that he is 15 and in high school. I see him being himself. Growing in skill. Growing in confidence. I go along with the ride. I make the necessary decisions as they arrive and try and be as supportive as possible. I try and remember that first and foremost I am the adult. I try to guide and allow open discussion wherever possible. That's what I do. I notice your post was two years ago. How are you today?
