My Daughter He: Transitioning With Our Transgender Children is both a story and a resource. Written by a mother reflecting on her own difficult journey to accept that her beloved daughter longed to be a boy, My Daughter He explores the labyrinthine path many parents travel: supporting their child’s authentic self-expression while experiencing deep-seated emotions of their own. Topics include:
- Finding the right team of professionals to guide your decisions
- Reversible and irreversible treatment options and if and when to begin them
- Self-care strategies and support for siblings
- Networking with other parents to create supportive schools and communities
With younger children exhibiting gender nonconformity or disclosing transgender feelings, and medical options for preteens that have positive lifelong benefits, parent decision-making has never been more urgent. My Daughter He is a valuable handbook to guide you.
Candace Waldron has written a book for everyone! My Daughter He should be required reading not only for parents and family members of trans children, but for teachers, counselors, and school administrators. In fact, all of us will benefit from the information in these pages. Besides being an education, it's a story that keeps you on the edge of your seat. I couldn't put it down.
