My 14 Yr old daughter says she is a boy

My 14 year old daughter says she is transgender but she wears makeup and has a boyfriend. I'm very confused.

If she’s just saying it and going about her life I’d probably leave her too it and put it down to the influence of social media.
If she’s really struggling you probably need to listen and ask her to explain.

I just saw this but as you hadn't had a lot of response I thought I'd recommend both Bayswater
& this book

"for parents who want their children to flourish, but do not believe that hasty medicalisation is the best way to ensure long-term health and well-being."

Best wishes for your entire family

My DD 12 has said the same to me this week and I am really struggling to deal with it. Hope you have support OP.

You're far from alone @Overreactingmom even though it can definitely feel like that
