BOX SET REAL TALK - NOW WHAT?
DESCRIPTION OF REAL TALK:
Transitioning is a marathon—not a 100-yard dash. What are you going to do once you reach the finish line? Real Talk is the first book devoted exclusively to gender transitioning for youth. Seth takes early transitioning seriously and offers an in depth road-map of the numerous issues that youth can expect to encounter in their journey. But Seth doesn’t stop there. He provides a guidebook of sound advice to help them navigate various stages of gender reassignment, including treatment options for hormones and surgery, coming out to friends and family, and tips for dating and disclosure. Real Talk presents an essential toolkit for building mental toughness and teaches youth how to take control of their destiny, achieve success, and live a happy, fulfilled life.
DESCRIPTION OF NOW WHAT:
Despite growing awareness of gender variance, books on the topic largely ignore the needs of families who struggle to understand and support their gender-nonconforming loved ones. Now What? A Handbook for Families with Transgender Children offers a comprehensive approach to the concerns and challenges that families must face. Butts explains options, provides resources, defines terms, lays out the history of transgenderism, and offers guidance through the myriad issues that confront families with a gender-nonconforming child. Practical in approach and thoroughly researched, this handbook provides information and support for families with transgender children of all ages, ranging from the pre-school child who shouts, “Stop calling me a boy! I’m a girl. Tell them, Mommy!”, to adolescents and adult children who transition later in life.
Finally, here is a book for the parent facing the confusion, anxiety, fear, frustration and guilt that accompany this journey. Perhaps you don’t know what to say to your child. Perhaps you wish you could take back what you just said, or you wonder how to respond to the callous remarks of others, or you find yourself continuously asking, “Now What?” This book will provide you with a solid working knowledge of the issues you are
