    Maybe watching the show will help? They seem to know when they are very young, that they are in the wrong body.I don't pretend to know all about it, but it must feel awful to try and live a lie.

    But what is normal? I mean she does have breasts and not every young girl develops at the same rate. Take it from me! Lol!

    I know, I stuffed my bra!!!!. I just think young girls develop much faster than they did, and its just normal to think about such things.

    I was in 6th grade and was already a 36B. I think most teenage girls think about breasts almost as much as teenage boys .lol Jazz has a good family which is something she is going to need on her journey to her dream. People and kids can be cruel when they don't understand something.

    I just worry the parents are pushing her into this. She's too young to have to be worrying about what gender she is. There's time enough for that once she's an adult.

    I was talking with my friends who are in their 60s. They had pictures when they were 18 and so beautiful. They said they felt very insecure when they were young. Even if you have a lot going for you, that is the age where kids feel very insecure.

    Jazz should expect that a lot of these guys are not mature enough to see the real person for another 10 years. Maybe in the 20s when there is not peer pressure, it will be easier to find male friends.

    Actually, I get the feeling it's just the opposite --- it seems to me that Jazz is the one who has unwaveringly been pushing her parents. And early on, I think her parents were very confused by the situation and very reluctant to allow their son to become a girl.

    And in regard to what the 'right' age is to think about one's gender --- It's just not realistic to think that any transgendered person would not be thinking about their gender until they were an adult. Most children know from a very early age what gender they are. The issue of what gender someone is, starts being important by the time they're 4 or 5 or maybe 6, because by those ages, they're usually already aware (to some level) of what little girls and boys do, the kind of things they like to play with, the kind of clothes they wear, etc. But if there's something WRONG about what gender one is, it starts becoming a problem in those early years. And the 'peer pressure' and judgment (and bullying) by the other kids usually starts not long after they enter grammar school.

    I'm not saying that young transgendered children would have any of the solutions at such an early age, or have any idea yet about how they will be dealing with their issues later on in life, but they are certainly THINKING ABOUT (and usually worrying about) all of those problems from the time they're very young.

    I just think it's time to stop parents from exploiting their young children for the adults own fame and fortune. Just stop already. The Khate kids, Duggar kids, Booboo, it's done none of these children any good. I don't understand the attraction (voyeurism) viewers have over other people's children, but the children aren't choosing this exploitation for themselves. I think Josh Duggar's problems came from the parent's goofy religion and isolating him from his peers, but had they not pushed him into the spotlight his life would not be ruined by public scorn as it has been. This exploitation really disgusts me. Are this young girl's parents so sure that this won't be harmful to her in the long run? Why take the chance?

    Let Cait have a show to explain her life and feelings as a child and finally her transformation to those who are curious and want to understand. She's an adult and can make that choice. This little girl owes nobody outside of her family and personal life an explanation of what her feelings are and she has no way of knowing how it will end up affecting her life. This is a particularly delicate time in the life of any child.

    None of these children are talented and aspiring entertainers who hope to get a career start with Disney or other child venues. Let them have a normal childhood away from the prying eyes of strangers.
