WATCH: Ellen Degeneres And Dwyane Wade Talk About His 12-Year-Old Trans ‘Son’

Don’t get me wrong, I’m a sucker for the Ellen Show and I believe we should support our children and love them through what they’re enduring.

However, ‘support’ and ‘love’ don’t always mean ‘just go along with it.’

As The Daily Wire reported:

Wade said preteen Zion, who now goes by Zaya, is a “leader” in the LGBTQ+ community, and noted that he and his wife, actress Gabrielle Union, are also “proud” allies of the community.

Standing alongside your child and encouraging a delusion is not beneficial. It’s actually pretty awful parenting skills… or, lack of skills altogether.

More from The Daily Wire:

“And for me … nothing changes in my love. Nothing changes in my responsibilities. So, all I had to do now is get smarter educate myself more. And that’s my job,” he continued, noting, “You want to talk about strength and courage, my 12-year-old has way more than I have. You can learn something from your kids.”

I agree that you should have unconditional love for your children but I can’t stress enough that love isn’t always dressed in glitter. Love is hard work and it isn’t always positive with rainbows and sunshine.

Also, learning from your kids? I mean, sure, you can learn a lot as a person by having a child(ren) of your own by understanding that the world doesn’t revolve around just you anymore; being a parent should mature you and stems from the selfless love that parenting necessitates.

Are you kidding me? An adolescent, especially a pre-teen going through puberty, needs more guidance than ever. Their little bodies are being flooded by an influx of hormones!

Take this example- imagine if we just placated our young ones who are enduring anorexia, encouraging the body image issue because validating the issue makes the child feel better.

The mind is a powerful tool and attention is a hell of a drug.
