For the parents of gender-nonconforming kids, a new approach to care

Stories and false statistics that exaggerate the proportion of children who stop exhibiting gender nonconformity may offer comfort to anxious parents who long for an easy life for their kids. They also prompt those parents to interpret any signs of struggle or ambivalence as de facto evidence their child is not trans, to withhold information about transgender lives from interested children and to create an atmosphere in which children learn to hide the complexities of their experiences to garner the approval of adults.

Trans Express links to an article on The Conversation website.  This is an excellent article, well worth taking the time to read.  How I wish these articles were around when I was a transgender child. Thanks to Jack Molay and Trans Express for sharing this.
