“In my practice, what I will usually say is, ‘There’s no one way to be any gender’. ”
Marco is a clinical-child and adolescent psychologist working with families with gender-expansive children and teens. He describes working with younger kids and teenagers, and stresses the importance of affirmative parenting.
“Regardless of what the future may hold, what we do know is that when we are not affirming of children they don’t do as well. In fact, they do quite poorly.”
