Medical Treatment for Transgendered Kids: Is it Ethical?


http://shine.yahoo.com/parenting/medical-treatment-transgendered-kids-ethical-184100148.html

This is a very difficult topic for many because of the great debate on whether being transgender is a psychological issue or something much more than that. My view on this whole topic is that grown ups should be able to do what they feel is best for them. As for young children, I feel that parents should take into consideration that children are very fickle and that their wants and likes change by the minute. So, your three-year old daughter thinks she is a boy…does that mean you go out and get her boys clothes, cut her hair and buy all boy toys? I would not, the first thing to do would be to ask questions about why and how they came to the decision. If for some reason they continue to believe that they are in the wrong body. Consult with a mental health professional who is especially trained to work with families with transgender children. I would not automatically start changing things in my household until I get a clear view of where my child is coming from. Some parents in my opinion jump the gun and change things up too quickly and that in itself can lead to great confusion not only for your child but for their friends as well.

Thank you for stopping by and for reading. I look forward to reading your feedback on this topic because it is a heated topic and everyone has an opinion. Your opinion is not wrong, just different from mine and I welcome your feedback with an open mind. I hope that you are reading my point of view with an open mind.

your feedback is appreciated!!!
