"For some parents, learning that your child is transgender can be overwhelming, often with a sense of confusion, anxiety, fear, and helplessness. This comprehensive guide, written by experts whose work is dedicated to celebrating and honoring gender diversity with the recognition that positive mental health outcomes are likely when people have the courage to be their authentic selves and are respected for doing so, is invaluable. With a focus on adolescents, this book gives parents the resources to support their transgender teens. The information provided is nuanced, yet practical. It anticipates the readers' questions, and addresses them with facts, depth, and insight. With the recognition that everyone has a gender and that more and more individuals are recognizing their own gender diversity, this book is of value to any parent and to all health care providers who care for teens." - "Dr. Stephen Rosenthal, Director of the Child and Adolescent Gender Center, Benioff Children's Hospital""

"The Transgender Teen is monumental in the progression of human rights, acceptance of difference, and explanation of how society influences one s view of gender. It not only reveals the complexity of gender, but also dispels the common myths and misconceptions about those who don t fit perfectly in society s gender categories. As the mother of a transgender child, I am relieved to have a resource that offers clear, practical solutions and strategies to help my child in the upcoming adolescent years. This book is a magnificent starting place to help guide any caregiver on the unknowns of raising a transgender, non-binary, or questioning teenager."
- Hillary Whittington, parent to a transgender teen
