Questioning one’s gender identity can begin early.
With access to the internet and today’s more tolerant climate, teenagers are more candidly exploring their expression and preferences. For some parents, this is comfortable and easy for them to respond to. For other parents from a more traditional background, this can be confusing, even frightening.
It’s important to understand your teen’s need to be accepted by their parents for exactly who they are. Making time to listen to them as they express themselves is key. Offering them support if they are struggling is a way you validate their trust in you. Turning to professionals when you find yourself lost and confused will help you help them.
There is a wealth of support available for youth who are exploring their gender expression and partner preferences. Keeping the lines of communication open is essential. I’m here to help guide you on resources and support you with your feelings–should you ever want to talk.
