Transgender at Five or Six?
By now most of us have probably heard about Bruce Jenner's transition to Caitlyn and know that he's struggled with his gender for quite some time. However, is it possible to experience Gender Dysphoria at age 5 or 6 ?
Gender identity is a good predictor of psychological adjustment. Early childhood is a time in which children begin learning about gender-typed responses through modeling and reinforcement. They organize these behaviors into gender-linked ideas about themselves. Over time, boys typically feel pressure to conform to male gender roles; whereas girls experiment with ?other-gender? activities. However, not all children follow the same developmental trajectory. Click on the links below to learn how 2 children have developed a strong sense of gender identity, but not in the way their families expected.
