I just found this board - my 13 year old told us this summer she is a boy. She told me via text. She never showed any signs of dysphoria. She was always long hair and pink and glitter and sparkles and bows. She started experiencing severe social anxiety at the beginning of puberty and then made some new friends in middle school. One of these friends had a older sister who came out as trans. A couple of years later so did the younger sister and then a whole flock of girls in my daughters grade. About a month later she told us she’s a boy. We found out that she had been swallowed whole by tik tok and you tube tutorials basically teaching her that God isn’t real and that if she’s feeling anxious it’s because she’s a boy. I desperately want to get her into therapy but I’m scared to take her to anyone that will affirm this so we have just been holding steady and loving her like crazy and telling her she is a girl. I would love to be approved into the private forum so someone can help me get through this and find a therapist who will help us.

Hello, and welcome.

I'm sorry for what you're going through. It's a crazy world when kids' self-diagnoses are taken at face value, and some people are insisting there's no way social contagion is involved, even when "flocks" of kids are claiming to be trans.

She is very sensitive and has been very much the same as I was approaching puberty, but the difference now is that young girls can ask google "why do I hate my breasts and my girl body?"  and the answer comes back very swiftly and surely  "because you have gender dysphoria and you will never be happy being a girl! you are really a boy in a girls body!  Embrace the real you!  Tell your parents to call you male pronouns and if they refuse tell them you are at risk of suicide if they don't support you!!!".  Girls aren't getting the chance to slowly grow into their new bodies and gradually find their identity as a young woman who can doing anything a boy can do!  My daughter has always been very feminine and confident but now she is so anxious living under a cloud of uncertainty about her future.  She is binding her breasts and wearing boys clothes and doesn't want to go out anymore, she just wants to be on the internet and assume her male identity online.  My beautiful girl has been brainwashed and I am gently trying to entice her off the internet and shower her with love and patience so she keeps trusting in my instincts and gives herself a chance at being a girl.  
It makes me so sad to see the trend amongst young women to join the transgender cult and its definitely a huge blow for feminism.   The medical world is being swept along before proper research has been done to determine the far reaching consequences of the hormone treatments on physical and mental health.  Mutilating surgeryies are being done and its some sort of crazy social experiment that only us in the 1st world areas can afford to indulge in.

I'm looking for help with my son who is 16 and came out as Transgender.  My husband and I have gone through various therapists.   The one we are seeing currently online is not a great match for my son.  
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.

Elo,

I saw some of my writings were being directed to this website and I wanted to see what people were saying about it.
