I have a question for parents: [In reply to] Can't Post

Do young children tend to see things in black and white - for instance, you're either a boy or a girl - or are they instinctively open to shades of grey?

I wonder if Eldarion thinks he has to be one or the other and isn't aware of the continuum of identity.

Regardless, Ro, the only advice I can give you is to take a deep breath and take each day as it comes. If, when he's older, Eldarion does doesn't identify with being a man, there is at least an established support network in NZ for trans-genders. (And then there's Georgina Beyer who became the first trans-gender Mayor and, I think, MP in the world - and NZ's far more tolerant now that it was when Georgina was making great strides in public life.)

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.
