Dwyane Wade recently sat down with the guys on the “I AM ATHLETE” podcast and had a candid conversation about parenting in an episode entitled “The G.O.A.T. of Parenting”.
D Wade and his wife actress, Gabrielle Union, have received lots of criticism for supporting their son Zion Wade’s decision to live his life as a girl.
On the flip side, the couple has also received a lot of support for being understanding parents to a 11-year-old coming out as transgender.
At 12-years-old, Zion told her parents she would like to be called Zaya and referenced as she and her.
Zaya is now 13-years-old.
Dwyane Wade has made it clear that he loves his children unconditionally, but he admits that when Zaya came out he had to educate himself about the lifestyle because it was new to him.
Wade’s primary concerns for Zaya is her happiness and putting her in a position to succeed in life.
“It’s my job as your father to put you in a position to succeed…it’s not my job to change you.”????
