I'm not transgender myself or have any sort of gender dysphoria but I was just wondering about one day if I ever had a kid who kept telling me that they want to be the opposite gender than what their sex from birth was (sorry if I'm using the wrong terminology). Of course, I'd let my kid dress like the opposite gender if they want. But after how many times that my kid tells me that they want to be the opposite gender should I actually look into helping them to transition? At what age should I start taking them seriously? Cause I don't know if it would be a phase for them so I wouldn't want to risk putting them through that so early only for them to regret it later on. Are there any studies on if (and how often) transitional regret happens to transgender people who transitioned early in their childhood? Do scientist have a specific age that they've determined to be too early to consider for young transgender people? Also is there an age where transitioning was long overdue so (cause I heard of a story of a young transgender who, if I remember correctly, was suicidal because she thought her parents were holding her back too long from transitioning and if she was in her 20's her hormones wouldn't make her fully pass as a woman)?
