Thank you for a much-needed article! This is a fantastic wealth of information that poses the question of why so many people are pushing this agenda so quickly on our vulnerable youth. People need to hear both sides of the story, and this is the other side that is too often silenced. I hope this is circulated far and wide.

This is such a heartbreaking struggle. It is particularly scary for a parent when you feel, while you are trying to figure things out, that you have the needs of your child, the voices of society and possible conflicts with school and public administrations that you are dealing wtih. I haven't had this exact situation but some very "modern" situations with my children. It was most helpful to realize that 1. i needed to find calm somehow so I could really talk w God and hear His voice. 2. pay attn and realize when I am moving based on fear or imagined timelines. 3 just because a voice is the loudest doesn't mean it is the correct one. Often, people who have the same questions, and would support you while you figure things out, are often the ones trying to be respectful of your "space" and don't say anything. There is a way to give love and support without pushing expectations. Finally, it was so important to shut out everybody else and make sure my child knew i loved them, was truly listening, and had the confidence that there were answers. Some of the things I dealt with took several years but as soon as I quit forcing my chosen result on my child and listened nonjudgmentally and LOVED them, things started to open up and we found a way thru. SATAN USES CONTENTION no matter the situation TO KEEP PEOPLE FROM HEARING EACH OTHER, LOVING EACH OTHER AND SUPPORTING EACH OTHER. God bless us all. He is good all the time.

THANK YOU! I am so grateful to see information on the alternatives and regret of transitioning. I feel like I’ve been fighting a lost battle against common sense as Mental health professionals and the world seem to tell me to let my child do whatever they want. I 100% agree with watchful waiting and getting the child busy and involved in life. How can we get information like this out to the youth who are being fed social media that is harmful?
