Going through puberty and adolescence presents unwelcome changes for transgender youth, and this book provides advice to parents of transgender teens to help them understand what their child is experiencing and feeling during this challenging time.   


Addressing common fears and concerns that parents of transgender teens share, the book guides them through steps they can take with their 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 30 years' experience providing psychotherapy regarding gender identity. He provides resources and further reading to help parents expand their knowledge.    


Although aimed predominantly at parents, this book is useful for anyone working with teenagers and young adults as it provides many answers to common questions about adolescent gender identity.

1. Introduction; 2. The Language of Gender Identity; 3. Gender Nonconforming Kids; 4. Sexuality and Gender; 5. Puberty and Adolescence; 6. Balancing Authenticity and Safety; 7. Nurturing Your Transgender Teen; 8. Taking Steps; 9. Medical Transition; 10. Conclusion; 11. Resources for Parents of Transgender Teens; Glossary

Sensible and straight forward, yet also sensitive to parents' own potential struggles adjusting to their new understanding of their child. It's an excellent resource at a time when such clear and comprehensive materials are desperately needed.
