The Transgender Child is MUST read for every parent, family member, doctor, teacher, etc. of a gender-variant child. It has given me tremendous insight and understanding regarding the feelings/behaviours/issues/etc. my child is going through and it has given me tools and resources to support my child. It was the only resource I was able to find for young children with gender-variant behaviours. I am buying copies to give to my child's doctor and school. This book is so wonderful.

HASH(0x9f71f45c) out of 5 stars A Wonderful Book Aug. 20 2008
By Dave Parker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a wonderful book!
The Transgender Child is the first of its kind - a thoughtful manual for parents and caregivers of transgender children, written by one of our country's most respected gender therapists and an experienced researcher and author of books related to the GLBT community and gender variance. Detailed, up-to-date, and easy to read, this book should be the prime resource for parents of transgender children and teens, and anyone who deals with them.
The Transgender Child includes a Foreword by Dr. Norman Spack, our country's leading expert on the care and treatment of transgender children and youth. It is followed by a series of chapters dealing with all aspects of how to deal with the child, their family and friends, their schools and school administrators and staff. Also included are excellent chapters on medical care and legal issues unique to these children.
Everyone who deals with a transgender child should have and read a copy of this book. It is especially valuable when dealing with those unfamiliar with the transgender experience - whether they are family members, neighbors, teachers, or the local Department Family Services. The Transgender Child adds the authority of leading professionals to any discussion of the child's care and treatment.
I recommend it highly!

HASH(0x9f720858) out of 5 stars What a Godsend Sept. 25 2008
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book was recommended to me by an Aunt after we sent out an email letting our family and friends know that our daughter would now be living as our son. I can not tell you enough how many questions this book answered and how much comfort it gave me to know that my questions weren't unique they were common.
And when it came time for our son to attend school as his new self this book went along for the ride. I offered it to teachers, principles, and any other person who seemed to need more information and understanding. The best part was this book does not point a finger or try to change peoples religious or political views which I sometimes find pushes people away from excepting. Instead this book just gives the facts, it tells you the details of everything on what to expect, how to talk to doctors, and what the laws are for trans children. My favorite part was at the end when it gave letter examples that your local doctor could follow to hand out to schools and other areas where you might need one.
This book has become my guide and I reference it often.

HASH(0x9f72027c) out of 5 stars A "must have" guide for anyone who interacts with transgender kids Aug. 6 2008
By K. Garza - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is the best book I've read on Transgender Children. It has valuable information, and is wonderful to share with schools, doctors, etc (I purchased extras to give away as needed). It was written in a manner that is easily understood, as well as including great resources.

HASH(0x9f720990) out of 5 stars The book is excellent, highly reccomended March 23 2012
By von Grim - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The other reviews were on the money. This book is great! As a transman, I recommend this book for anyone who has a trans friend, relative, child, sibling or just wants to understand trans more. It is informative and sensitive, brings you to the level of the trans person's experience. It helps cisgender individuals with how to deal with the emotions and process of grief, understanding, and support. I bought and read this with plans to give it to my family when I come out to them. Hopefully it will help them through their personal journey.

HASH(0x9f720060) out of 5 stars Great Resource for Parents and Teachers and Friends July 12 2009
By AntsDivideLabor - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
"The Transgender Child" goes through the current psychological research surrounding raising transgender and gender variant children. Main message: love your child. It then goes through the legal precautions you may consider, as well as how to make sure your child's school is working hard in his/her best interest. It is clear and straightforward. I loved all of the quotes and messages from transgender children and their families. I think they could have used more research references. The section on the education system was helpful to me, although I think that more training is necessary in addition to this book.
