How could a 3 yr old even contemplate doing this.:eek: How would he even know this was the difference between a boy and a girl, or what the difference even was at that young age.
Possibly, he was teased by his elder siblings, but this is not something a 3 yr old would occupy their time with - the difference between boys and girls, and even thinking of mutilating themselves and ‘know’ that is how they could change it.
Doesn’t make any sense whatsoever.
*Seeing their toddler playing with scissors can be a terrifying sight for any parent but for Kerry McFadyen it was a moment that changed everything.
The 32-year-old came across the scene in the bathroom of her home in Strathspey, Scotland, when three-year-old son Daniel said he wanted to cut off his penis so he could be a girl.
It led to his parents making the difficult decision to allow Daniel to become Danni, in what is believed to be the UK’s youngest case of a child wanting to change sex. She said: 'He was in the bath. And somehow he’d managed to find a pair of scissors. When I turned around he was holding them above his bits.
'I tried to be calm and asked him what he was doing, and he told me he was about to cut off his willy so he could be a girl.
'I told him he couldn’t because he’d hurt himself and bleed a lot and I calmly took them from him and gave him a big hug.
‘It was very upsetting to see him like that, no mum should have to see their child so upset in their own skin.’
