I’m a mother. I love my kids. Never would I have guessed that I would be learning how to parent a transgender child. But you know what? It’s really not much different than parenting a cisgender child. Sure, I had to learn some new words, but really, it’s still just parenting.
I do my best to teach him manners, responsibility, respect, how to navigate the world. I want him to grow up safe and successful and fulfilled. I want for him what you want for your kids.
