Is it your child who isn't comfortable with who they are - or is it you? Refusing to support gender non conforming children is proven to have disastrous effects on their mental health. If you truly care about your child, support them through this and respect their wishes. If they decide that being a boy is not right for them and that it was just a phase they will 'go back' to being a girl on their own. If not, it is your duty as a parent to support them through what is bound to be a difficult journey.
