When Kids Say They’re Trans: A Guide for Thoughtful Parents

By Stella O'Malley, Sasha Ayad, Lisa Marchiano   Available from Swift Press

There have been many books written for parents who are facilitating a child’s gender transition, but almost none for parents who decide that social or medical transition is not the best option for their child.

Written by three professionals working in the field – Sasha Ayad, Lisa Marchiano and Stella O’Malley – When Kids Say They’re Trans is explicitly a resource for parents who want their children to flourish, but do not believe that hasty medicalisation is the best way to ensure long-term health and well-being.

Parents who have successfully helped their children navigate gender distress without resorting to surgery and hormones have done so by actively taking the reins, not waiting until they found the right therapist or doctor. When Kids Say They’re Trans will tell you all you need to know, and will give you the confidence to trust your own instincts.
