    im a single mum with 3 children aged 28 24 and 14.my problem is my youngest who is a boy. last year he had an altercation in his school resulting in 2 boys being suspended after what they did to my son.since then my son has been up and down he sits in his room all night when he gets home and hardly eats.i have noticed his weight drop enourmously his dad left us just on 8 years ago for another woman and i have done everything possible to make all my children as happy as i can specially my youngest as he is the only one at home.he has been through some bad times for a young lad and i thought he was dealing with them but obviously i was wrong cause now he has told me he is bi sexual.he has got a girlfriend who he has been with for over a year but known her longer and informed me that he also likes boys as well.i do not have a problem with this but i am concerned about it and was wondering what is the best approach.

    I suggest finding your son a really good adolescent psychologist.

    It sounds like your son is going through a lot and talking to a professional may really help him.

    Teens can seem happy, and hold it together, but on the inside be struggling horribly.

    Take care,
