My oldest son is 7 years old and has done many girly things since he was 5 he has said things like im supposed to be a girl and why is he in a boys body etc. I have been very open and it is his life but how serious do I take it cold it still be a faise or should I start thinking about him becoming a girl we cant even talk about girlfriends and he has said I know its wiard mom but sometimes I think about having a boyfriend. I want him to be happy and sometimes it seems like he is so uncomfortable with himself

This would be something to talk over with his pediatrician. If he truly has gender dysmorphic disorder, the more you can learn and prepare yourself and him for the journey ahead, the smoother the journey will be.
