Hi- I have a 12 year old daughter who just recently turned 12. A few weeks ago she was on tiktok and saw an inappropriate video of two girls “together” and doing inappropriate things. Her good friend who is also a girl came out last January as being “gay” . Recently after seeing this video and her friend talking to her about all the girl crushes she has, my daughter has been so sad because she thinks she is also turning “gay”. She has so much anxiety and feels like every girl she now looks at is pretty and she feels like she is attracted to them. She never use to be like this and she is telling me she always use to think girls are pretty but after watching this video on tiktok it just made things stronger. I try to keep talking to her about it without judging her but it all boils down to her being scared that she might turn gay. I told her she is only 12 and she should not worried about that and just be worried about school and having fun. I am completely lost as to what to do but I just want my daughter to be happy again. Note: she has had major crushes on boys in 4th,5th and 6th grade. I also don’t want to make it super super big deal so she starts feeding off my anxiety as well. Please help! Should I get her in with counseling or try to resolve this at home !
