      My first 'dnf' of the year sadly- and not because it was bad I'm really glad this book is around and is there for everyone but it was incredibly slow and repetitive for me and I didn't feel the need to finish it. but that's just me personally, so I do recommend this to other people and to especially those who want to find a way to support a gender creative child of their own or they know.

      The idea of this book was promising but the execution was disappointing, and at times, infuriating. The author frequently disregards the voices of transgender and gender non-conforming people, sharing stories in which she uses the wrong pronouns for children while she's chastising their parents for misgendering them, asking transgender people for guidance about what language to use and then rationalizing her choice to ignore that guidance, etc. Overall, it was very frustrating to read; I felt li [...]

      Needlessly jargon-loaded BS. A lot of it reads like some kind of starseed parenting manual, making it very clear that the innate glowing specialness of the transgender child will shine on parents too, if they just take their kids to Ehrensaft or an Ehrensaft-like proxy. I've been to a conference Ehrensaft presents at as a (then) transgender teenager. When I looked at the kids my age around me, even then, I didn't see kids who seemed especially creative, or brave. I saw extremely anxious, uncomfo [...]

      When the obituary for the gender binary is written (being perhaps more optimistic than realistic) this book will surely be listed as a major contribution to its passing. Not just because of the scientific/medical information that it contains. Dr. Ehrensaft’s writing style makes the information easily available to pretty much any reader. That is, this book provides other professional or volunteer service providers a solid approach to working with gender creative clients and gives parents of gen [...]

      A critically important book to all those who support and/or love trans and gender non-conforming children and youth. It's well-written, accessible, thorough, and enlivened by combined profiles of some of the children, youth, and families whom Ehrensaft has helped to council."The Gender Creative Child" is a significant improvement on Ehrensaft's previous (but still wonderful) "Gender Born, Gender Made," which focused mostly on traditionally gendered trans children and youth (i.e those who are com [...]

      Super comprehensive - learned a ton in this. Skimmed over a lot of the clinical stuff and focused more on the anecdotes and basic information. Good start on research for my middle grade novel.

      The Gender Creative Child by Diane Ehrensaft is a free NetGalley ebook that I read in early March. Being highly interested in the concept and lifestyle of gender fluidity, I looked forward to learning about the study of this taking place from birth and early childhood.Ehrensaft creates dynamic, 'take from them as you may' chapters out of personal stories, observations, social critique, medical studies, and self-proclaimed criteria (i.e. the concept of apples, oranges, and fruit salad). They each [...]

      not a quick read, but a thorough look at all the elements of raising or otherwise supporting a gender creative child. with chapters on gender, ways it's expressed, overlap of gender creativeness and co-occurring diagnoses, supporting parents, seeking professional help for mental health or from MD's, this book offers a broad look at all the issues facing our children. I appreciated the research and the anecdotes, and can't wait for further research to continue offering us more answers, so we can [...]

      A very engaging and quick read about children (ages 3-18) who declare themselves to be other than the gender that was marked on their birth certificates. Dr Ehrensaft's revolutionary approach to this? We should listen to them. Psychological, medical and anecdotal stories are woven together into an affirmative and loving celebration of gender creative children and their families.
