Publisher's Summary

Transgender teens: Sometimes caution is the right approach.

Some people don't identify their gender as the sex they were assigned at birth.

Some people, for example, may have been born with a penis, and designated male at birth as a result, but later realize that they identify as women and that typical social standards of masculinity or femininity don't apply to them. These people are adopting forms of gender identity and expression that aren't related to their body parts or what sex a doctor decided they are at birth.

Many obstacles can make it difficult for people to come out until later in life.

And to understand what transgender, gender nonconforming, genderqueer, and nonbinary mean, you have to understand what gender identity and expression are, and how both concepts differ.

When teenagers confide that they are transgender or uncertain about their gender identity, their parents may be unsure how to offer support.

Our research adds to the evidence that transgender adolescents’ perception of their parents’ support may be the key protective factor in the teens’ mental health. It’s that perception of support that parents want to nurture. What can you do? It’s things like offering a hug, being there to listen. These are things anyone can do. They are free and fully reversible, whatever path the teen takes in their gender journey. There are no medical side effects to listening and giving hugs or trying your child’s preferred name and pronoun.

It’s all about helping the teen fully explore who they are.
