    First, you are a girl, you're not becoming one.

    Next, many people write a personal letter like the ones found here:

    Next, see if they will let you see a gender therapist for an evaluation, a list of some can be found here:

    Last, a couple online support forums that may help:

    You say you have male anatomy but identify as female. You mention no craniomaxillofacial deformities. Therefore, you tell them using you mouth and the process of speech.

    You get to tell your parents when you are ready. And prepare for the good or the worst, they will either respect you or disagree with you.

    I’m no doctor, but I suggest you do a lot of homework on hormones. The truth is, considering how young you are, wait a couple of years until you understand what are the side affects and what you are putting in your body. Taking hormones is a serious matter.

    You will always be you in the end, no matter what or how you look like. Happiness isn’t on the outside of your body, it’s whether or not you accept yourself on the inside. Literally, follow your heart.

    You would have to take hormone blockers to stall the onset of puberty until you are old enough to transition. Good luck.

    One doesn't "become" a girl. It is a long process to get started on Hormones (HRT). Even if you were diagnosed years ago, you are still not at the point for starting HRT. Go here for the info you asked for: https://www.transgendermap.com/youth/for-young-tra...

    I think before you tell them you should look into this yourself to see what it means, how much it would cost and what support you can get outside of your family.

    If you have all the facts and figures then they are more likely to be supportive than if you just announce it with no idea how it is going to work out.

    You were not born in the wrong body, you're a boy for a reason. You're boy to grow into a man and lead a future wife and kids into the things that are good, lovely, just, Godly, and of a good report
