How do I tell my parent I'm trans
|I think I’m trans, but I don’t know how to tell my parent|
Hello there! welcome to Ask Alex, we’re here to help you with your question.
First of all, we want to say that it’s great that you’re reaching out and exploring your feelings. Figuring out your identity can be a confusing and emotional journey, but you’re not alone in this.
It’s completely normal to feel uncertain about how to tell your parents. Remember, your feelings are valid, and it’s important to be patient with yourself during this process. It might help to find a quiet and comfortable moment to sit down with your parent when you’re both relaxed, and talk calmly to them..
Consider talking to a trusted adult, like a school counsellor or a teacher, who can provide guidance and support. They can help you plan how to have this conversation with your parent and offer advice based on their experience.
Additionally, you might want to check out resources like lgbt.ie, which can provide valuable information and support tailored to your situation. They have a wealth of resources and community connections that can be incredibly helpful as you navigate your feelings and identity.
