Transgender youth

Transgender youth are adolescents who are transgender and/or transsexual. Because transgender youth are typically reliant on on their parents for care, shelter, economic support, and other needs, and because most doctors are unwilling to provide medical treatments to them, transgender youth face different challenges compared to adults. Transgender issues manifest at different times in life in different individuals. In most cases of gender dysphoria, the condition is often superficial in early childhood, when such a child may express Behavior dissimilar and dissatisfaction related to their assigned gender. However, many of these children experiences rejection as a result of their differences and quickly attempt to repress them. Therefore, people who see these children regularly may be unconscious that they are unhappy as members of their assigned gender.
