Oh, good god! A splash page? Already? Don’t worry, there aren’t a lot of these (most pages in fact have quite a bit packed into them). In fact, aside from the chapter intro pages, this is technically the only one. I tend to find this to be cheap so I’d like to not make a habit of splashes like this.
But onto the relevant subject matter! Who’s up for a little debate? Let’s get a little controversial here, shall we? X:
How do you feel about the response Ryan’s mother gave to her 4-year old child? Was she too hard on the kid? Do you think maybe she should have just humored him, especially since she herself just believes it’s a phase? Or did she really do the best she could given the situation? If you were a parent and your very small child came to you and said what Ryan said, how would you respond? What is the right answer… if there is one?

Oh Bella. Sorry they hrut you people who don't understand can be so hurtfull.
No one else seemed to respond to your question so I'll give it a shot...
I think she should have humored him a little. At least when she saw him getting upset anyway. At the same time she probably did do the best she could.
What can you answer when asked why a boy can't become a girl? If it were me, I'd probably have to try and say something not nearly as vague as it just doesn't work like that. Because knowing myself, it's not a good enough answer, imo.
But... I don't think there is a right or wrong answer.
Well, it CAN be a phase, but it can also NOT be a phase. It's pretty much a Schrodinger's child, so I'll go with their flow and they will show.
