Going through puberty and adolescence presents unwelcome changes for many transgender youth, and this book provides advice for parents of transgender teens to help you understand what your child is experiencing and feeling during this challenging time. Addressing common fears and concerns that parents of transgender teens share, the book guides you through steps to take with your child, including advice on hormones and surgery and how to transition socially. It addresses the recent increase in teens presenting with non-binary identities, and reflects major legal, social, and medical developments regarding transgender issues. The author's insights are gained from his professional experience of providing psychotherapy regarding gender identity.
