The number of children attending gender identity clinics has quadrupled in the past five years, statistics have revealed.
Figures have shown that 84 children aged between three and seven were referred to gender identity clinics last year, compared to just 20 in the year of 2012 to 2013.
Experts said the rise could be explained by the promotion of transgender issues in schools, which may have encouraged more children to think about their identity.
Some warned that teaching children about transgender issues could be ‘sowing seeds of confusion’ in the minds of young people, leading to more seeking gender identity therapies.
