Guidance for parents of transgender children

Guidance for parents of transgender children

I remember so well what it was like!

In the fall of 2011, my daughter screamed in my face that she is a boy. It was a climax of a period when my child really didn’t feel well. It was also the start of my child’s transition.

In the beginning, I was overflowing with questions I had no answers for. For days I searched the internet for information, but I could not find answers to all questions. Some things you just don’t know in advance.

Later came the grief for the loss of my daughter and the shame that came with it. After all, my child was still alive, so was I allowed to feel that sadness?

Well, if I only knew then what I know now. Then I could especially reassure myself.

How do I work?

The guidance I provide takes place entirely online, but you can indicate yourself whether you want to use Microsoft Teams or Zoom.

The online conversations last 1.5 hours and are not recorded. You decide how many conversations you want and when they take place. It is your path and therefore also your pace. Of course everything is completely confidential.
