Raising and supporting a transgender child (including teens and young adults) is still seen as a radical move by many. We are here to offer support and help educate people on matters ranging from understanding the difference between being gender non-conforming and trans, talking to doctors, when to allow a child to transition, name changes, clothing, puberty, hormones, sports, schools, family stress, religion, laws, frustrations and triumphs. As society starts to understand the needs of the transgender community, more people are seeking information on how to be supportive. We will also explore ways schools, medical offices, and businesses in general can support the trans population, as an extension of the training services offered through Gender Inc.

What We Can Do There are many things that we can do as a family to help our children look outward to the needs of others. Todayâ€™s child will fight a battle of not even knowing how to interact appropriately with others, if we allow devices and social media free reign in their lives. One of the first things that we can do to help them see whatâ€™s truly going on around them at hands reach, is helping them place boundaries on devices. Having set aside unplugged family time is a great way to do this. Taking turns discussing what is going on in each otherâ€™s lives at this dinner table is a simple way to start. A child listening to how a parentâ€™s or siblingâ€™s day went is a very simple and easy way to look past their own self. The next step is taking time to train your child to â€œsee a need, fill a needâ€�, a great quote from the kids movie Robots. This can start in your own home but it will take some time and encouragement. Little things like taking their own plate to the sink af ...

Why Is This Important? We touched on this yesterday, why it is imperative to teach our children to function in a unit. If our goals for parenting are to raise a child to become a Godly adult who is both marriageable and employable, then teaching a child how to â€œlay down selfâ€� is an extremely important lesson. We have all been around people who are just 30 year old adolescents. They give in to their every whim or desire regardless of the needs of those around them. This is not a desirable characteristic for an employee or a spouse. We mentioned yesterday how Philippians tells us to value others before yourself. Romans explains why we do this. â€œTherefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of Godâ€™s mercy, to offer our bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to Godâ€”this is your spiritual act of worship.â€� We lay down our will and desires not only because it is in our best interest to function in a unit, but because it is an act of worship to God. Listen to todayâ€™s podca ...

Last week, we recorded a Round 2 not once but twice, and both times it got lost somewhere in Dropbox-land and never made it to our editor. Fortunately, we were able to salvage one of those recordings, and we've embedded it into this week's super-long episodes, which now includes two 4-episode installments of our Parks and Rec marathon as well as our impressions Grease Live. We hope this podcast is live now, too, something we're never going to take for granted again. (If you're following along in our marathon, this podcast contains last week's eps, "Kaboom," "Greg Pikitis," "Ron and Tammy," and "The Camel," as well as this week's, "Hunting Trip" (see video), "Tom's Divorce," "Christmas Scandal," and "The Set-Up." Coming up next week: "Leslie's House," "Sweetums," "Galentine's Day," and "Woman of the Year.")

Getting Past the “Selfie” Todayâ€™s cultural focus is the individual. If we are not careful we can allow this to impact our parenting. We are told to value â€œme timeâ€� or that we â€œdeserveâ€� certain things, even if it is to the detriment of others. This seems to be blatantly obvious anytime we are out on the road, itâ€™s hard to find a lot of selfless drivers. Now while it is important to celebrate each special quality that makes our children unique, the gifts and talents that God gave them, we have to find balance and help them learn to thrive in a unit. In todayâ€™s â€œselfieâ€� culture we are raising a generation that if we are not conscious, will not be marriageable and employable. I think we could all agree that we want our children to be selfless not selfish. In fact this is imperative if we are Christ followers. Christ taught us in order to lead we must serve. Philippians 2:3 tells us, â€œDo nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value other ...
It's true!

I’ve been sick, so I apologize for my voice! In Episode 2 of the Trans-Parenting Podcast, I tell our family’s story of discovering our child, Avery Jackson, is transgender. Avery’s transition was really a transformation. She became the happiest, most loving child imaginable once she started living as a girl. Not all trans people are ok seeing photos of themselves pre-transition. Avery doesn’t mind hers. She likes to remember waaaaaay back when we were “too dumb” to know who she really is. Please leave your comments about the podcast below. If you have questions or suggestions for future topics, I would love to hear from you.
How to motivate through big behavior issues What do we do if our child has a major behavior issue?Â Â How do we motivate through it? Most of the children who come through our Sheridan House residential program are there because of a major behavior issue.Â Â This does not mean that they are failures or that it is hopeless, by any stretch. Behavior modification is all about teaching that there are positive rewards when you make the right choice and negative consequences for the poor choice. One of the best motivations is relationship.Â Â If the residential children make the right choices then they have the free time to hang out with the staff. (this doesnâ€™t mean that the staff â€œremoveâ€� their relationship for the poor choices, just that the children have chosen free time rather then work. There are many times that a staff member will go sit with a child who has chosen to be outside working to communicate support. ) One thing that we always must communicate is our love. If your c ...
It's been one of those weeks here in Parenting Roundabout land (an enchanted place that now spans four timezones), and so we come together for our group chat with a shorter attention span and a more meandering style than ever. But that's where your brain's at too, right? Here's a road map of this week's conversation: 1:43: What's New With You? — Join is in a moment of silence for Nicole, who has just had her parents in her house for FIVE WEEKS. And a moment of thanks for OnStar, which saved Terri from a very awkward conversation with a parking-lot attendant. 5:44: That Storm Was How Big? — You might have heard, it snowed a li'l bit on the East Coast last weekend. We talked about what counts as an OMG STORM! in our various parts of the country. (Visit the French Toast Alert System and a Facebook message from the Bangor Maine Police Department to laugh along with us.) 17:44: What's for Dinner? — A mention in last week's episode of Terri's husband's old-school paper-based meal-plannin ...

Six Basic Steps to Motivating Your Child Here is a basic checklist of things to look over when processing an area that your child needs to be motivated in.Â These are all things that we as parents can do.Â The first three are questions to ask yourself before preceding. The first question is, has anything changed in my childâ€™s life recently?Â Process from your childâ€™s point of view, things like a move, the birth of a sibling, or even things going in with you as a parent your child can pick up on.Â It may be as simple as having a conversation with your child explaining things or communicating that you know that things are different for them at the moment but you are there supporting them. The second question is, how is the relationship?Â Ask yourself, does my child always feel that Iâ€™m proud of them or does my praise focus on one sibling more than another or am I only praisingÂ performance? Spend some time processing how you can consistently communicate that you are proud of yo ...

The Word â€œWeâ€� One area that many parents find difficulty motivating their children, is schoolwork. There are many different simple ways to motivate a child to study. One of the first things that you need to do is, like we discussed yesterday, know what motivates your child. Some children do well coming immediately home and getting homework out of the way. Other children need a break and need to do something physical to blow off some steam from sitting all day. Other children would study well if they had something to make that time feel fun, like a snack. Still others, who are more relational, would focus great if they were able to sit in the kitchen and do homework while mom was making dinner. But what happens if this is all tried and your child still is falling behind at school? Before trying to get to the bottom of anything you need to communicate to your child not that this is â€œtheir problemâ€� that needs fixing but that this is our problem that we are going to work on tog ...

Take The Time To Learn What Motivates Every child is different and there are different motivational triggers for each person. Make sure that you are taking the time to know your child well enough to know what will motivate them. That being said there is one thing that tends to motivate everyone no matter what the personality. That is positive reinforcement. We all want to hear that we did a good job or that someone is proud of us no matter what our age. Make sure that you are not only trying to push your child to do well but that you are positively reinforcing even the small things. Most of the time when a child knows that they are going to be praised for a job well done that is enough of a motivation in and of itself. There are many types of positive reinforcement; things such as verbal praise, giving a hug or even taking the time to be there with your child when they are doing something. All of these things communicate that what they are doing is worth it. Make sure that you are ...

Welcome to the very first episode of the new Trans-Parenting Podcast. On the first episode, we cover a lot of the gender definitions that we will be using in future episodes. It’s Trans Terminology 101! The Show Notes are here as a helpful quick-glance guide. I cover much more about each item in the show. Be sure to listen. Episode 1 Show Notes: Biological or Anatomical Sex. This is the physical structure of one’s reproductive organs that is used to assign sex at birth. Biological sex is determined by chromosomes, gonads, and hormones. Most of the time, these combinations will result in someone in typically male or female configurations. Standard practice is for a doctor to glance at a newborn’s genitals and declare the biological sex, which is then recorded on identity documents and becomes what we call their “sex assigned at birth.” I’d like to note here that chromosomes denote sex, not gender. And because a lot of people will get hung up on chromosomes, I’ll also point out that ...

Check Your Motives The first thing we need to do when processing motivating our children to do something is ask ourselves why. Is this an area that they need to be motivated in for their future success? Is it something that will better their character? Or is it something that really only makes us feel like a successful parent. There are many reasons why we may be a performance-oriented parent. Click Here to find out more.
