Podcast – How Parents Cope with Transgender Teens and Gender Dysphoria

Last week, I did an episode on gender identity and sexual orientation. I spoke about the general terms, pronouns and other basic things we should understand. I was overwhelmed by all the messages I received from parents with first-hand experience — when it comes to raising and supporting children/young adults dealing with the conflict between their assigned gender and the gender with which they identify. Today, I’ll share with you some of those messages.


You’ll find out:

  • What is transitioning socially
  • Why it’s crucial to have empathy for all those going through this journey – parent & child
  • What is non-binary
  • A recent study on Rapid Onset Gender Dysphoria (and why it’s controversial)
  • Major questions many parents (of kids struggling with their sexual/gender identity) have
  • Thoughts/advice on this subject from Dr. Mcayla Sarno
