I have been noticing a lot of changes in my 8-year-old son's behaviour at home and even at school, his teachers complained that he behaved very differently as compared to other kids. I tried to understand if there was some problem he was going through but it was only last week, he came to me and said that 'he is gay'.

He is still a kid and I am not sure if he understands things about sexuality. But clearly his gestures and behaviour has made me really worried. I don't know how to react and deal with such a situation. I still haven't discussed it with my husband, as i am too scared. What should I do. Please suggest.

Please deal & teach him "DELICATELY & TACTFULLY SINCE HE IS AT TENDER AGE & REQUIRES YOUR LOVE, AFFECTION & PERFECTION PROFUSELY". Don't be so "PANIC EVERYTHING WILL TURNED IN A POSITIVE WAY. TRUST ON GOD AND PRAY FOR HIS WELLNESS.

You are right when you say that he may not be even understanding what he is saying.About his gestures and behaviour may be your own interpretation after his telling.You did not feel any thing before he said that to you .Is it not?

Well, the situation is a bit out of the ordinary since there aren't many openly gay individuals in India. So, it is not something you'd expect and the consternation is understandable. At the same time, there is not much you can do to "change" your kid's sexuality if he indeed is gay..it is hardwired into the genes...try to educate yourself on the subject and help him understand things better 'cuz , more than you, he is going to need help in accepting who he is....the society doesn't make it easy either
