An Interview With Dr. Drew: A Child in Transition

Puberty is a time in life marked by many changes – physical, emotional, hormonal, and social. The transition can be tumultuous and difficult … not just for kids, but parents too, even under ideal circumstances.

Now, imagine if you had to choose between being a man or a woman. That’s what Jazz and her parents are facing.

Jazz has lived as a girl for most of her young life … and while the onset of puberty brings new challenges and choices, she’s pretty confident about who she is and who she wants to be. Hear Dr. Drew in the video clip, as he talks with Jazz and her mother about the transition.

Jazz and her family share their story on “I Am Jazz: A Family in Transition.” Encore presentation TBA by OWN.

    I am very impressed about Jazz’s personality and her wonderful parents. A friend of mine is trans and before becoming a female at the age of 30, she committed suicide 4 times (starting the age of 4)… We need our society to get some education about this issue so these sad incidents won’t happen as much. I wish you all best of bests :)
