8:18 am
when do you know it's different? >> well, with gender identitity, yousually know very early on. yes, you know, teens try on difffferent identities and little kid, preschoolers, boys will want to try on girl's clothes and vice versa. with gender identity it usually forms early by around age 2. nicole knew, she said i knew that i was a girl. and preschool she would introduce her, hihi, i'm wyatt, i am i boy but i know i'm a girl. it's different from saying i want to try on a dress. >> nicole's parents, so supportive. how as a parent do you approach this? >> you know, it's hard to imagine what a parent must feel when they have this one idea of what their child is going to be like and they get this difference. you want to ask your child's dodoctor and, you know, realize a lot of doctors have no idea how to deal with this. say you have any experience in dealing withssues around
8:19 am
gender identity, if not, can you refer me to someone who does. so you can get some support around this. d, you know, this isn't something new but our ability to talk about it i isomething that is -- reached a whole new level. >> some people thi it is. it seems we are talking about it more and more. is it we'realking about it more? >> i think there's more of an acceptance of difference and that's a terrific thing. >> it is. all right. rich, thanks. have a great weekend. and for more on these twins tune in to "nightline" tonight right here on abc. hope that you do. outside to ginger. >> robin, you have to see this little megan from omaha, nebraska. i'm shopping around for baby clothes. look at these cute -- they're so eet. those jeans with the ankles. okay, let's do weather. on to the real stuff. a quick look at the fall foliage. iron river, wisconsin. that's noaa's outlook for winter
