							Through extensive research and interviews, as well as years of experience working in the field, the authors cover gender variance from birth through college. Is this ever just a phase? How can you explain this to your neighbors and family? How can parents advocate for their children in elementary schools? What do doctors specializing in gender variant children recommend? What issues should your college-bound trans child be thinking about when selecting a school? How can I best raise my gender variant or transgender child with love and compassion, even when I barely understand the issues ahead of us? These questions and more are answered in this book offering a deeper understanding of gender variant and transgender children and teens.

"A great, practical guide that every parent should read.

"This beautifully written, meticulously well-researched book is a godsend for parents and professionals in search of clear, reliable, and up-to-date information about all facets of parenting and caring for transgender children. Combining real-life experience with the latest research, Stephanie Brill and Rachel Pepper have written an indispensable guide that will save lives and empower families to ensure that transgender children receive the love and support they need to thrive." - Shannon Price Minter, Legal Director, NCLR

"Libraries may own books dealing with transgender adults, but this is the only guide about raising transgender children. While the general message to parents is that "you have nothing to apologize for and nothing to be embarrassed about," the authors make it clear that parents and families will not have it easy. Realistic and empowering. Background: What do you do when it's Grandma's birthday dinner and your eight-year-old son insists on wearing his dress and Mary Janes? And how do you handle dating when your transgirl daughter still has male sex organs? Brill and Pepper bring solid credentials and years of research to help parents and others deal with issues specific to transgender children." - Linda Beck, Indian Valley P.L., Telford, PA -- Library Journal
