Enhancing your understanding of both your own and your LGBTQ+ child’s emotions and experiences, fostering unconditional love and support for them, and prioritising self-care.
Rebekah Robertson OAM ~ Transcend Australia Founder and Proud Mum
“It’s About You Too is a warm, gentle, compassionate embrace of the maelstrom of emotions many parents experience as they navigate the unfamiliar terrain of supporting their LGBTIQ+ child. As the proud parent of a trans child myself and having supported hundreds of parents over the years, I know how vital it is for parents to safely process what can feel like a storm of seemingly conflicting emotions. It can feel really isolating. Tracy Whitmore offers parents practical guidance, tools, exercises and insights to help transform fear into peace and pride for parents of LGBTIQ+ children. This journey requires us to grow, and Tracy has written the book to help parents do just that. So settle down, and allow yourself to absorb the wise and compassionate heart of this work. You’re not alone.”
Beth Richardson ~ Advocate for Parents of Transgender Children
“It’s About You Too” assures parents that their feelings are normal and then gives them tools to help them work through the overwhelm, confusion, grief, guilt, and other emotions they may be experiencing, by sharing stories of people they can relate to. The crown gem is the Moment of Pause (MOP) at the end of each chapter to help you work the stress and emotions out of your body. What parents need most is support for themselves so that they can better support their child, and that’s what Tracy excels at.”
