This episode is personal for me. I have seen firsthand the challenges and joys of raising a transgender child.
In Episode 53, I chat with Cyndi Sweeney and BriAnna Simons, who are both parents of transgender children and advocates for inclusion awareness. Cyndi is my good friend, a writer, educator, journalist, and consultant for beyond binary thinking, and BriAnna is a clinical social worker who specializes in child and play-based therapies.
Cyndi and BriAnna share the challenges and joys that have come with parenting their children as well as some helpful insight for parents of cis kids around how to raise sensitive allies for transgender children. They discuss their new children’s book, The Pink Balloon, and share resources for families with a member who is questioning their gender identity.
I urge you not to skip this episode. You'll learn something new about a topic most of us know too little about.
