MP3: Parenting a LGBTQ Child


Melissa and Sandi are joined by Susan Berland, a parenting coach for parents of LGBTQ children. Susan explains the LGBTQ acronym, how she came to her work and the emotional ride many parents -regardless of religious affiliation- experience when their children come out as gay, bisexual or transgender. You'll also learn how and when to begin having dialogue with your children about sexual orientation* so they feel safe talking to you about anything as they grow.

*After we finished recording Susan mentioned the term sexual orientation is the preferred vernacular to sexual preference which was used during the recording, as preference implies choice.
