What do you do with an 11-year-old son that insists on wearing his sister's jeans and tops at home and has her teach him how to apply makeup?
Answer . \nMany young boys are interested in their sister's clothing. My brother wouldn't let my mom hem my skirts (he was the model) unless he could "twirl in them!" LOL He was your sons age. He use to steal my mom's bras as well and stuff them with toilet paper! LOL He is 56 years old, b…een married for 32 years and has two wonderful sons. \n. \nTell your daughter not to encourage this behavior with helping him apply make-up. Puberty is usually 12 years old, so I'd wait and see what happens. If he doesn't change, then you should take him for psychological counseling to find out why he does this and if he's really gay or just a cross-dresser. Cross-dressers are not gay! \n. \nI am a firm believer that most gays are born the way they are. Why not? Hormones are hormones and some can have too many of one and there are all sorts of other reasons. If he is gay, I know it's hard on you and probably worse for your husband to accept, but, whatever his gender will turn out to be then back him 100%. Finding out you are gay is not always easy on an individual so he will need all the support he can get.\n. \nWhatever you do, don't let him get caught outside of the house or in front of his sister's friends cross-dressing because your son's peers could cause him a lot of hurt mentally and physically.\n. \nGood luck\nMarcy (MORE)
What should you try if your 8-year-old son was diagnosed with ADD and you started him on 5mg of Ritalin but it did nothing?
Try alternative treatment first.. . \nI would first look into other possible solutions. My son (now 7 1/2) was diagnosed with ADHD a little over a year ago, after a few bad years of Preschool and Kindergarten. Not wanting to medicate him, I began researching alternative methods of treatment and …have found that diet is a huge factor, as are supplements. He is still not perfect but has not been sent home or to the principal's office this year! (Yeah!) Start with removing all artificial colors, flavors and preservatives from his diet. From there you can look into possible food allergies. (Our son is allergic to dairy, wheat, soy, egg and a few other things - I never knew.) You can add magnesium, fish liver oil, and B6 and these should also help. Good luck, it is along haul and people will think you are crazy, but in our opinion it is worth trying these things first.

Answer It all depends on what country you are planning for him to do ballet, and the socio-economic group your son, and yourself associate. Don't make the mistake that prejudice is not prevalent. I can only say this as I myself began ballet at age 8. I progressed, trained at on of the worlds bes…t pre-professional schools, and later became a professional male ballet dancer. Its a tough road, even during the first couple of years. Even though I didn't really take ballet seriously until I was about 12-13 throughout my time as a student and as a professional I was bullied, assaulted and laughed at. Not just by boys, girls as well. I remember in grade 4 at school I had to fight for the first time on the play ground in a pretty serious scuffle. Lucky for me I have a strong resilient personality. Through my entire life almost on a daily basis I have been questioned as to whether I am gay or not. I am not, but this didn't stop females, and on occasion ones I was sleeping with doubt my sexuality. Its a funny world, so watch you son, don't let him be bullied. I'd recommend that he train in a self defence as well, just to be on the safe side. Having said all that ballet, is in my opinion the most sophisticated form of performing art, and the most beautiful, male dancers are revered in certain circles, as they should be, as its extremely difficult, athletic, and artistic. If your son shows signs of an artistic temperament, go for it. Answer I started ballet at 10. When word got out at school (you can't keep it a secret forever), a few people laughed at me, some people encouraged me, others said nothing. I am in high school now. Most people who find out these days say something along the lines of "Oh, that's cool", only a few laugh at me. No one has ever beat me up or called me gay for doing ballet. Perhaps I live in a more tolerant society. If your son wants to take ballet, let him. If society does not like it, you can change society's mind. Other contributors have said: Most likely, yes.I have been taken ballet since high school and ever since I started, I did everything in the realm of my power to keep it a secret. At my first class, there was a girl I recognized from my high school. We had a nice conversation after class and she even helped me some. I remember thinking... this could be fun. I think this is the start of something beautiful. The next day at school, word got out about it and the TEACHER gave me some razzin.' I kid you not. I was in shock. I was so stunned, I think I ceased to be for a few seconds. But since I've graduated from high school and left the judgemental, I haven't really gotten much ribbing since then. Anyway, the world has changed in ways a lot of us still don't even know. I now do ballet often and have dedicated a portion of my life to it. You have to if you really want to be good at it. It kind of sneaks up on you, then posseses you. I've gotten a snicker here and there, but I've mostly gotten approving nods and words for my studies of classical dance. So in answer to your question, "How much love and interest does he have for the craft?" Answer I'm a high-school girl who takes ballet class. The studio I've been taking at for my whole life hardly has any guys. In my level there is one guy, all the others in the studio are about 7. I've really come to appreciate having this guy in my classes, I know that he works hard and doesn't care what people think. As for the girls at our studio, we have never made fun of any guy dancer because without them we wouldn't have a partner to dance with. I think it would be great for more boys to do ballet, there is really nothing wrong with it. Answer Well it depends... there is a boy in my ballet class, and he never gets picked on. Some people think that ballet is cool, and I think it is. But some people may pick on him, but that's because they think that "ballet is only for girls". Well you should know that there is some ballet companies just for boys... Ballet is like a sport, and no one gets picked on from playing sports... Answer"> Answer No-one gets picked on because they dance. Bullies may use this as an excuse, but it's not a proper reason. If he has the confidence to dance, then he might well have the confidence required to stand up to people who have nothing better to do with their time than push other people around. Answer When people ask him why he does ballet, he can say "it gets me closer to the ladieeesss"...Your kid will be a player in no time:) (MORE)
Well, is it a fashion statement or a dare or joke. You would have to ask him why he wore it. If he said because he wanted to, I guess there could be worse things he can do, like drugs or violence. Its only a piece of clothing so if it didnt bother him to do it, then it shouldn't bother you. I would …let him know that he is a reflection of you and should think about the types of decisions he makes when out of the home. (MORE)
My neighbor next door has an 8 year old son who is crazy about Chelsea football club would it be possible to get a signed football?
Answer . i think that kid might be gay because that girl is really a man
What would you do if you caught your 8 year old son wearing nothing but his sisters favourite satin blouse around town?
Answer . I would ask him why he felt the need to do this and let him know that he is a reflection of his family and needs to act accordingly. Was he making a statement, trying to fit in with his friends or be a jokester?
Would you let your 8 year old son go out with his friends wearing nothing but his favourite white satin button through back blouse with no skirt or any underwear on?
Answer . Well, there are at home clothes and there are ones to go out in, and he should know the difference--but you might still have to insist. But if he actually went out dressed like this, he needs to come back in and change to clothing that is similar to everyone else. At 8, he should still …be required to do as asked, following parental direction. (MORE)
Your 8 year old son insists on going out with his friends wearing nothing but his sisters white satin button back blouse with no skirt or any underwear on what should you do if you caught him in town.?
Answer . He's 8 and is going through a phase, if you don's say anything to him he will eventually stop doing that. Don't make a huge fuss. I use to baby sit a little boy about the same age who played with barbie's and loved the color pink. At first I would tell him no little boys don't play wit…h barbie"s. The more I said no he continued, but after I stopped saying anything he stopped playing with barbies and is now playing with trucks, tractors, and other boy objects, and hates pink. So just don't say anything to him, he will stop. (MORE)
What would you do if your 12 year old son insisted on going out with his friends wearing one of his sisters favourite navy blue satin Chinese style dress with no underwear on?
GOOD answer . you should 1st find out why he wants to and if he does burn the dress. CORRECT ANSWER:. That is of course silly. He should be wearing a bra and panties at least and maybe a half slip and stockings. If he is going to wear a dress then he needs panties for sure and not boxer shorts …but soft silky nylon bikini panties and I would suggest a garter belt and stockings since most Chinese silk dresses have a slit up the side and that is such a sexy look. I hope he wears makeup and has long hair. My husband loves me to wear my Chinese dress with a garter belt and stockings and full cut French panties with lots of lace around the leg openings so you can see the lace at the top of the slit in the side of the dress. I sometimes make him wear the same thing (he has a larger set just like me and he is sexy in it). (MORE)
Find a way to explain how the accident happen, try to avoid blaming anyone for that, (the drunk driver is wrong though) but your son is a child you shouldn't let hate grow into his heart, he is too young to be able to contain such pains, pain of losing his father, and pain of hating...

Is it normal to let your 8 year old son go to school dressed like a girl because a teacher caught him trying on a girls button through front school dress in front of his friends outside in the yard?
Possibly... The boy is probably boy-to-girl transgender. If he is, he has probably wished he was a girl and wanted to be a girl his whole life, or close to his whole life. It shows open- mindedness on the parents' part to allow him to become one. The son is probably grateful.
I am fifty five years old and my ex is trying to collect child support on your thirty eight year old son is this possible?
That is aquestion for a lawer. the 38 year old son would have to be a full time student from age 17. Child support would have to have been granted before 18 th birthday. Call a lawer and ask .

Has she had a loss or big changes in her family? Sometimes children find this very difficult to deal with. Maybe she is being bullied at school? She might be bullied in school or something might be going on with her and her friends. Girls are experts on bullying so it doesn't show. it's all abo…ut body language and signs you don't pick up on unless you know what to look for. Talk to her teacher if she has noticed anything in school, if her work is slipping or she's not with her friends anymore or if she's hanging out with someone else. Also ask the parents of her friends. And of course try talking to her. Just tell her you have noticed how sad she's been recently and that you want her to know that you are always there to listen and that it's easier to share heavy things then carrying them all by yourself. Maybe she is stressed for different reasons? Children with ADHD for instance are very stressed and crying is a way to get that out. If you also have undiagnosed ADHD and have anxiety, crying is a way to relieve the stress. If it's really bad and she doesn't want to talk to a parent and doesn't get better, take her to a therapist. Sometimes it's easier to talk to someone who's not related or that you know. Maybe she's being forced to keep a secret? Sexual abuse, usually by someone close to or in the family is always accompanied by "This is our secret. You can't tell anyone." Does she spend time being looked after by someone alone? Is she ever in a place where she can be approached? Is her bedroom safe at night from everyone (including close family)? Maybe she's in physical pain? And of course also make sure she is not in physical pain anywhere. (MORE)
What would you do if your 9yr old son insisted on wearing one of his sisters favourite white satin frilled neck plain front button through back blouses with no skirt or underwear on outside.?
Don't let him go outside, but it's normal for him to want to do that, he's experimenting. I know this sounds kinda rude but it's his business and choice, if it doesn't hurt him then it's fine. Parents should learn that their children aren't their property but another living being with their own way …of doing things. So don't make a mountain out of a mole hill. Actually you should take it lightly maybe take his picture with it on, it'll be one of those embarassing reminders when he's older that everyone will laugh at together. Or he's trying to find himself. Harmless, but seriously don't let him run out of the house half-nude. That's alittle to expressive. Hope it helps. (MORE)
Because it feels good. I use to do this at 5... It is perfectly normal. Now you DO however, need to teach him that in public it is a BIG "No-No"
5'8 at ten years that's tall I'm 5'8 and I'm 14 I imagine he going to be a least 6'6.
Tell him can't, for example watch T.V until he's got all his books. He needs a homework assignment notebook where he keeps all of hisassignments - then, when you get into the car, ask him to check hisnotebook and make certain he has everything he needs. Wait untilhe's certain before you leave schoo…l. If he rides a bus or train,you can have consequences for not bringing his work, such as notwatching TV or not playing video games or going on the internet. (MORE)
Unless the magazine is holding a nationwide search or model contest, your child's best bet is to be signed with a modeling agency that has a children's division and has such magazines like American Girl on their list of clients. Large publications almost always turn to professional modeling agenc…ies to recruit their models. You can also try sending an email to the magazine's website to ask if they hold any special auditions or allow you to submit pictures of your child. (MORE)
What would you do If you caught your 8 year old son in town wearing a white satin button through back blouse with no skirt or underwear on which meant everyone could see his penis?
Talk to him, to see if he was bullied into it. Or maybe it was a dare. Make sure he knows what he did. Make him know it is differant from chucking food down the toilet and other stuff kids do. Only do this if you are angry thoug. If you are concerned you do really need to talk to him. It could be so…emthing he saw someone else do. Maybe on tV or on the Internet. If that is the case you may need to let him know why they did it, although that depends on the reason. Maybe he needs to know why he shouldn't do that. He is maybe a bit young for him to want to see girls do the same thing, and still to young to know if he would want to see girls do the same thing (MORE)
It's not something unnatural, although it is unusual. It just means that he may be going through puberty at a very early age.. A: .

Would you let your 10 year old son go out wearing one of his sisters satin button through back blouses with no skirt or any underwear on to meet some of his friends who also do the same type of thing?
This sounds like a sex problem and not a gender problem. The heart of the question really lies in "with no skirt or underwear on": does this include pants yes or no? Are you saying he just wants to wear the top and nothing else girly? Are they doing anything they shouldn't be (beside the top)? Does …he want to wear anything else or is this some sort of "group thing" (to be in a girls group one time, I had to drink some of one parents alcohol so I know about "wanting to be in the in crowed") All in all the reason behind it is more important than the behavior itself: is it a fad or a pattern. Does it have to be the sister's? Is he asking for his own? .... (MORE)
Your 8 year old son has described to you that his father is smoking with him in the room by the description this is most likely marijuana Does anyone know if you took him to get a UA would he fail it?
Generally I would say no, unless it has been a large amount. However, a more accurate test might show it.
What would you do if your 8 year old son insisted on going to school wearing the girls school uniform which consists of a white blouse and a grey pleated skirt?
Answer: if this is a serious request then you have to sit quietly with him and find out what he is thinking. It is not unknown for children to have gender identity problems. It might be worth exploring the matter further with a counselor. Answer: Do not assume anything; whether it is something… that needs therapy, something that won't go away or a passing phase. The best way to handle this is to ask him "Why?" And LISTEN! If He thinks they're neat or pretty or look like fun, then you can probably just discuss society's accepted roles and how clothing is a part of that. Most boys will be a little let down, but give up pretty quickly. IF he doesn't give up or he gives answers like "but I'm supposed to be wearing that, I'm a girl" or insists on wearing girls clothes only, DO NOT BERATE HIM, DO NOT BEAT HIM! Find a therapist that is knowledgeable in gender issues. A regular therapist (with no experience here) will be no help and often cause more damage than doing nothing. IF this is a large part of him ("I want to play with the girls, I don't want to do boys stuff, I am a girl") then trying to force him into a mold will make an angry and resentful child, possibly prone to addictive behaviors (for coping with externally applied stresses), problem behavior and even self-destructiveness. Many transgendered people say they knew from their first memory that something was wrong, that their body didn't match who they are (mind vs body.) Often it is remarked by parents and family that gender related behavioral differences could be seen as you as 4 years old. The "just say no" answer is incomplete and needs to be supplemented by the knowledge that sometimes the only answer is to accept what the child says is true for them (not that broccoli is bad for them, or they "need" to scream and yell, but expressing who they are is a very important part of becoming healthy adults.) Please, take your time, listen to your child and understand that he (or she) may feel in someways totally alien to you and this MAY or MAY NOT be changeable. A truly loving parent will care less about what they neighbors will thing, what my pastor thinks, what the guys at the bar think and will work towards what their child needs. Which is NOT to have the "sissy" beat out of him. Responce to Answer: I want to say that the advise given above is the best advice you can receive and I hope for both you and your child that you please listen to it. My best friend was born physically a girl but has always known he is different. He went through a lot of struggles and a family that was torn between denial and supportive. He is now taking the medical treatment to make his outsides fit him and is happier then I have ever seen. Please listen to your child and if he says that he is a girl then please be understanding and take the steps to understanding all that that means. (MORE)

What would you do if you caught your 8 year old son wearing one of his sisters satin nightshirts with no underwear on underneath it in school?
It is not uncommon for young boys to wear their sister's clothing.

If you are not satisfied with his answer then you should see…k out a child psychologist. This may be a phase and if it is not then you need to know how to deal with it. (MORE)

What if your 8 year old son watches you lift weights and wants to lift too you want to teach him the bench press would this by safe?
Bad idea. The muscles in his body havn't fully developed yet and by lifting weights it would stunt muscle growth and may affect how tall he/ grows.
Your son is a specific individual, and there are no charts that will tell you what he "should" weigh, any more than a chart can tell you what skin tone he "should" have.

You live in Pa is it legal to allow your boyfriends 11 year old son with your 8 year old son for 4 hours to babysit?
i don't think so because you have to be 12 and older babysit but is the 11 yr old responsible? i f you have good kids it shouldn't be a problem.
How would you deal with your 8 year old son wearing one of his sisters favourite yellow satin nightshirts in the middle of town with no underwear on or skirt on around his waist?
I think you should suit him up like Rambo. Make him look real masculine. And make him wear 50 pairs of undies on top of each other with a sock in it.
How would you react if you caught your 11 year old son trying on a satin nightshirt and you could see that he'd no underwear on underneath it in a shop?
Well, I'd first discuss (quickly) that he needed to at least wear something under it while trying it on. After you send him back to put on at least underwear, I would have a short discussion about the fact that if you don't buy that piece of clothing, it was very rude to do that - what person would …want to buy it after that? When we get home (whether you or he buy it or not) I would have a discussion about shopping ettiquete and ask a few questions about why he was interested in that particular piece of clothing. No yelling, no crying, no blame, just a quiet question and answer period. He may be a crossdresser. He may not. Many men that are NOT crossdressers have a fetish for women's clothes; they're often soft or silky or slick to touch; something most men's clothes do not feel like. Best thing to do is talk and listen, go over rules for public behavior and let him know he is loved. (MORE)

Being transgender wont make him any different that way. He's a 8yo with toys I imagine so the worst thing depends on the child, not whether he is transgender or not.
No of course not. You don't need a passport to travel within one federal country!
No, not without the other parent being found in contempt of court if the father decides to file such an action. That can lead to the mother incurring fines, jail time and even custody modification to favor the father if the contempt becomes chronic. However, Texas is unique in that it greatly enc…ourages children to make their wishes known to the court regarding custody and visitation and if the child is age 12 and older, the law mandates a judge must meet with the child in chambers to discuss just that. Since your son is not yet 12, it isn't legally required, but the judge will take the child's wishes into consideration if they are conveyed to the court but will ultimately rule in favor of what he/she feels is in the best interests of the child.

It could just be him goofing off or just trying to figure out why girls wear such shoes.

At 12, he probably has no id…ea that it could make him seem a little off. If you're worried about him being metrosexual, transsexual or gay, maybe have a chat with him when he gets a bit older.
