What can transgender kids do to live their lives as the gender they were meant to be? What are the u


What would you do if your son insisted on wearing a dress to school?  What if your baby girl insisted she was a boy?  It seems transgender children are coming out earlier and earlier, but the situation raises endless questions: is their cross-gender identification is just a phase?  How can parents support gender identity?  How young is “too young” to transition from one gender to another? At what point should parents seek medical intervention?  What are the ramifications of suppressing or countering the biological changes inherent in puberty?  Should surgery even be considered when dealing with children?  Where can trans-identified youth go to get medical assistance?
