Parents of a lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or questioning child often search for ways to help their LGBTQ child navigate through a world that isn't always welcoming. Eriksen, the mother of a gay daughter, explains what she and her husband have learned through experience. She covers the science on gender and sexuality and offers advice on how to help a transgender child through the various stages of development, deal with everyday problems, and keep your child talking after he or she comes out.
