Publisher's Summary

Is it just a phase, a fad, or a real issue with your teen? This comprehensive guidebook explores the unique challenges that thousands of families face every day raising a teenager who may be transgender, gender-variant, or gender-fluid. Covering extensive research and with many personal interviews, as well as years of experience working in the field, the author covers pressing concerns relating to physical and emotional development, social and school pressures, medical options, and family communications. Learn how parents can advocate for their children, find acceptable colleges and career paths, and raise their gender-variant or transgender adolescent with love and compassion.

Very helpful and informative for parents

I enjoyed listening to this book with Audible. As a parent of Nonbinary teen, I found it's explanations and terminology very helpful. I know as we continue on this journey I will be referring back to this book!

Good information at its core

The narrator pronounces certain vowel sounds in a way that is quite irritating. This includes the 'a' in the word 'family'. As this is a common word in this book, it is very distracting.

The core of this book is very informative for families with children who identify as non-binary or trans-gender. The listener does have to filter through a hippy-esque approach that often borders on being hokey. It is worth the effort, in order to become a more informed parent.

Hard going

Found it to be very repetitive and did not learn anything , maybe useful for someone who has not heard anything about transgender .
