Episode 213 of my Curate Your Health Podcast is out! Link below.
Dr. Lulu is here today to discuss gender identity. She identifies this as your true sense of self, how you see yourself, something, no one else can tell you. She stresses the importance of respecting someone’s gender identity. She is a pediatrician and talks about how to be the patient’s advocate and how to really listen to what they are saying. It is imperative that children have at least one trusted adult. She coaches parents who are triggering kids, parents who are not affirming; and home needs to be a safe place. We don’t have to understand, we just need to know. Pediatricians and parents need to ask open ended questions, use pronouns, and affirm who they are.
