Diagnosis and Treatment
It is natural for parents to feel that they have done something wrong to cause Klinefelter's Syndrome, even though they have no control over it. Some try to force their child to act like a "real" boy and do what they, but some boys with Klinefelter's Syndrome have the mentality of a female, so this can be detrimental to their psyche. Parents should support their child's development by getting speech therapists and tutors to keep their son from falling behind. If parents have any concerns they should talk to their doctor.
