I have looked at the dynakids site and it looks very complicated to be accepted. They have to call home (they call only once) to check who he is, he has to sign a document, etc.. He lives part of the time at my place and part of the time with another parent. So, if they call and he is with the other parent, they won't be able to reach him.
My question: Is it worth all the trouble to get him on dynakids?
You can PM me if you prefer.

My son is 18, but DXed at 12 y/o. He was never one to reach out for help...still isn't. It depends on your son. Is he excited about the idea of "chatting" with others similarly affected? If so, go for it- although (I agree) the process sounds pretty cumbersome. One thing I do remember from Dynakids, 99% of the participants are girls. That kind of turned my son off. As we know from the fella's represented here, guys are affected; but tend to reach out less What a wonderful Mama you are to encourage him to seek support!

In this day of cyberstalkers I feel better knowing that the list is so well monitored. I think you would be doing a great service to your son to give him this opportunity and if it isn't for him then that is his decision, but it can be a really great thing. You can tell them when the best time to call is so don't worry about if your son isn't there and they are really nice so you will enjoy talking to them also
They also have a parents forum.

Thank you for your insight. I will wait until he comes to my place to ask for the phone call.
