When a teen transitions or is non-binary, one thing to keep in mind is their pronouns changing. So how do you wrap your head around a big change like that, so your teen feels affirmed and supported? Ginni and Jo have some sage advice for a listener struggling to understand.
Plus, we hear from a LGBTQIA+ teen listener who doesn't always feel comfortable at home so spends a lot of time at friend's places, and wants to let other parents know their house is a safe space.
