    1. Full disclosure my fifteen year old nephew is a trans boy, so this was a way for me to understand his new life choice and what it means to those who are undergoing this transition He is a great kid, a churchgoing straight A student, and an athlete.cally a boy like any other except that anatomically he was born a girl.This book is a terrific introduction to a phenomenon that is sweeping the news media today The authors skill lies in explaining difficult concepts in an easy to understand way The s [...]

    2. The Transgender Child is an excellent introductory book for parents and professionals The version I bought is 52 pages longer than GoodReads says Maybe a newer version with added

    3. I m giving this four stars though I personally lean towards 3 3.5 It seemed to me like the entire first half of the book aimed to teach parents not to bully and abuse their children This section didn t really resonate with me and was very hard for me to read, but I recognize that it is sadly necessary in a book of this nature I do appreciate that the authors come from a place of no judgment and meeting all parents wherever they may be I hope many parents take their advice.For me personally, it w [...]

    4. This book was my first formal reading in the field of transgender studies, and I honestly can t say whether it increased my understanding or just added to the confusion Actually, that is not true I did gain a better grasp of the various terms and core concepts related to gender identity as it is understood today But as for understanding the nature of the struggle itself, I m still not sure I realize this is a sensitive issue for many people, though, so I won t venture to opine about things of wh [...]

    5. This book is packed with useful information, which is a little problematic because I didn t think it touched on some topics in enough depth It s an excellent guide for such things as dealing with problems at school, how to help a transgender child choose a college, etc but there s not much information on how parents and other adults should appropriately respond to a child s assertions of their gender The book notes some of what children will say that indicates they may be transgender or gender v [...]

    6. I found this book to be very informative and interesting It was not full of jargon and is appropriate for anyone who wants to develop a greater understanding of transgender issues.

    7. This book is about ten years old, but that doesn t make it any less useful This book is jam packed with resources, anecdotes, and supportive words This book is for trans knowledgeable families as well as those who have no idea what they re doing, and it shows with how the chapters are broken down The first chapter is filled with vocabulary that will be used throughout the book and are useful to know in terms of your child Then, from there, Brill and Pepper tackle the hard subjects of what to do [...]

    8. A large portion of what the author purports as truth and science are nothing than anecdotal deductions based and the limited research there really is about this I wish it had been evidence based.

    9. A much needed addition to the contemporary parenting book selection, The Transgender Child is a comprehensive, informative resource By combining research and personal stories, the authors present a text that will prove itself indispensable not only for parents and families of transgender children, but also for anyone who works with young people.Many families today are facing the challenges and joys that come with raising a transgender child This experience can be confusing, frustrating, and depr [...]

    10. well, this book meets a need the target audience is well intentioned, kinda vaguely feminist vaguely familiar with the concept of transgender families with kids under 18 who are trans or gender questioning as you get further from this experience, the book becomes less helpful some things about it i really enjoyed the stories from different families about their experiences with having a trans kid the overwhelming number of positive stories where families are really trying to hard to respect under [...]

    11. Read or skimmed about 3 4 of this book over the last couple weeks Overall a very good introduction handbook for anyone working with transgender kids with lists of other resources at the end of almost every chapter It was published in 2008 and I found that some of the information already feels outdated, given the rise of transgender stories in mainstream media It could also be my perspective as someone living in a liberal area and who went to college with many trans classmates relatively speaking [...]

    12. Fantastic book for anyone looking to understand how to support gender non conforming and trans children and youth Especially written for parents but relevant for anyone Repeatedly mentions but glosses over specific issues of race ethnicity, religion, and other issues that compound the lives of these young people, which isn t terribly surprising in a book that s supposed to be an overview for a general readership Pick this book up and learn how to make the lives of our fabulous, wonderful, gender [...]

    13. 2nd good book I read on trans This is from a different perspective than the 1st I read The focus on trans children is especially important to me, as that is the original purpose of my reading into this subject However, the added information about steps in the development of a trans person was helpful It is filled with hope for the future, of further understanding and compassion from the American culture towards trans people I recommend this book to everyone, as it will help you become open mind [...]

    14. Very well organized and covers a lot of ground It ll take you from just getting ready to grab the bull by the horns to actually riding it pretty well Be prepared for some emotional moments as they discuss some of the awful truths you can run into raising a trans kid The information includes real world experiences as well as how to make it all work for your kid Definitely check this one out.

    15. I read this as part of curriculum writing I was completing as a school counselor This is a very prevalent counseling concern and I found this book to be a good overview of current understanding of this topic It is written with the perspective of the parent in mind but there is a lot to be learned from it.

    16. The Transgender Child is, to me, the 1 book for any person mainly parents who know a gender non conforming person I consider it a great medical or psychological journal in layman s terms If you or someone you know has a gender variant or transgender child, go pick up this book.Also, it s a book I haven t FINISHED reading I use it at least once a week as a mother.

    17. Most of the early chapters are fairly repetitive Last 3 chapters are probably the most useful for parents and professionals The info did help me understand why some families might choose to allow a child to transition at a young age Definitely not something I ever thought about while working as an elementary school counselor, but now I will be aware.

    18. This is an interesting book I only read it because I am dealing with this in the classroom Really cutting edge information I borrowed it from the library and only had one chapter to go when my bag was stolen out of my car toady But I got the idea Really great info for any family or school whom are dealing with gender issues Lots of first hand stories that added a lot to the book.

    19. I thought this was a really good resource for parents of trans and gender variant kids Read this out of general interest, but also cause a friend and I are putting together a training for Pediatric faculty MDs I for one thought the stories of parents accepting and loving their kids was real damn tender and inspiring.

    20. Stephanie Brill wrote the Essential Guide to Conception, Pregnancy, and Birth for Lesbians and is one of the founders of Maia Midwifery I m guessing this is good on gender, and has half decent but incomplete nods to class race issues.

    21. unfortunately this book caters to parents of very young children, and does not necessarily provide any real information other than acceptance While this is perfectly fine, it is not enough for those of us looking for answers.

    22. This book has been very informative and helpful in understanding the developmental stages and early journey of families with gender variant children I have bought copies for our therapist, elementary school and middle school.

    23. Very interesting Beginning was very intuitive Let people define themselves and be supportive But the end contained a lot of legal and medical information that I didn t know Gave be a better grasp of some the complexities.

    24. Brilliant, factual and extremely helpful Great overview of gender non conforming children for their parents and their community to better understand gender identity and expression and what daily life is like in their shoes.

    25. Must read for anyone looking to understand different perspectives, especial medical, of transgender children Brought a whole new awareness to my life that wasn t there before and educated me in a way that no other information on the internet did.

    26. Very helpfulI am a therapist for a 7 year old transgender girl and this is an excellent resource for everyone who has a desire to learn about this issue and a recommended reading for parents.

    27. Five stars for the consistent focus on advocacy Still the only plain language book for parents with an ages and stages approach, both for child development and parent development

    28. This book attempts to cover about 20 years worth of parenting advice support in one book It s far too broad of a topic to cover in a single book.
