\ezs note: Mothers, fathers, and friends of transgender youth - there ARE things you can do to make your kid's life better.

1. Organizations such as PFLAG are there for you.  You can check to see where the nearest meeting is by contacting their Web address: www.pflag.org

2.  Talk to your children about seeking help.  Your child may not have the abilities to winnow out the losers. ("reparative therapy" is a good example)  You can pick out the good ones.

3. Talk to your child's teacher(s) in a friendly but FIRM manner that she/he is NOT a freak.  If the teacher insists that your child just 'get with the program', suggest that she/he take up welding instead.  At least she/he won't be able to harm any more children.

4. If there is no good program in your area, dial 1-800-273-TALK. There are good people there who are willing to help though the distress you are feeling.

I think the word diva has lost its true meaning in today's society.  A true diva is someone who delivers the goods at the highest level possible on a consistent basis, whose success is based on hard work and a deep, true talent.
