It's so frightening and frustrating, isn't it? Parents feel so helpless, and I imagine that feeling of helplessness is multiplied when you're a grandparent and don't feel as influential or involved as a parent. 

It's wonderful that you are involved and want to be there for your granddaughter. My brief advice is to stay in her life as much as possible. Continue nurturing her and keeping your relationship with her strong. Be that person in her life who never refers to her as a boy, if you can lovingly walk that line without getting access to her cut off. Take her on confidence-building outings, just the two of you. Be there for your son, as well, since it sounds like the two of you are on the same page.

I encourage you to create a membership for this message board and post your question in the members-only area. Forum members don't visit this public area all that often. A group effort of advice from multiple members will be much better than the quick advice I've given here. To join, click on "register" in the black bar across the top and follow the prompts. It may take  several hours for your membership to be manually activated, so please be patient with the activation process. I think you'll find the members-only area helpful. Your son may be interested in joining, as well.

Best wishes.

I need help> where do I take my daughter???? Ive spent countless of hours searching for the right place that will not only treat her but also guide her in the right direction. A lot of places and therapists aren't trust worthy, I feel as if this were a cult and they've dragged my child down a rabbit hole. We're in Miami Florida, my daughter is experiencing gender dysphoria I need resources near our location if anyone knows of a good center that could help her get better and is evidence based. Thank you

There are a lot of issues that need to be dealt with like depression, anxiety, and sleep deprivation.  We are looking to deal with these issues rather than having someone that just going to talk about the Transgender issue.  I think he has turned to this community for a feeling of belonging.
We are located in PA and any advice on a good therapist would be great.
Thank you!

Welcome, MomPA. Your account has been activated. I hope you'll find the forum helpful.

Regarding your search for a therapist, I believe there are a couple in PA who are members of the Gender Exploratory Therapy Association. These therapists take an exploratory approach, exploring and looking at what is going on with the patient overall, rather than quickly affirming a patient as transgender.

I believe there is one PA therapist listed on page 1, and another on page 2.
