About This Workshop

  • My 8-year-old daughter just declared she is “non-binary.” Help! I have no idea how to respond.
  • My extended family is really upset that we are supporting our teen’s gender transition. How can we handle their objections and protect our child at the same time?
  • My teen told me that his friend let him know that he is gay and my son wants some advice about how to support his friend.

The issues of sexual orientation and gender identity can be daunting for both kids and parents. It’s easy to feel confused about the changing ways that many in our society see these issues. Your child will look to you for guidance about how to feel and act. This workshop will help you prepare for an open, ongoing dialogue with your child or teen that is candid, authentic, and supportive.
