Dear David Coleman: My son told me he is bisexual but is he too young to know?

Q My 12-year-old son is a typical boy, plays video games, hangs out in the park with his friends and wants to be a YouTuber for his career!

He shared with me that he is bisexual and this shocked me as he has never displayed any behaviours that would lead me to believe this. I accept and love him for who he is but feel confused by his declaration because he is so young. I wonder if he is confused about his sexuality or in general? I want to help him in this process and also want some clarity for myself as well.

Answer: There are a number of real positives about the process so far that jump out to me. It is great that he felt comfortable enough, and confident enough, to be able to tell you about his sexual feelings at age 12. That suggests that you and he have a good relationship and that he trusts you and respects you.
