Beyond Pronouns

The Essential Guide for Parents of Trans Children

Foreword By
If your child or teen recently told you they are transgender, non-binary or genderfluid, you're bound to have questions. You may wonder how best to support your child's transition and doubt whether you are making the right decisions.

When her son came out as transgender, Tammy Plunkett had the same worries. In Beyond Pronouns, she shares her candid experiences learning to navigate her child's transition and provides clear and practical guidance to help you do the same. She deals with many frequently asked questions, including:

- Is this a phase?
- Why not wait until they're an adult?
- How do I tell others my child is gender-diverse?
- Where do we start a child's transition?

Offering gentle guidance through the first 100 days and beyond, Tammy uniquely addresses the need for parents to be supported so they can best care for their child. You will find ways to face common fears, have important conversations with your child, be a good ally and much more, with age-appropriate approaches that aim for a happy and connected family.

This book will come to the rescue of parents faced with the reality of a child not identifying with their gender assigned at birth. It is written by someone who has lived through this experience, in a practical, realistic, open and non-judgemental voice. It reminds us to be gentle and forgiving to ourselves as we support our gender diverse children to navigate their transition journey.

NetGalley Reviewer

This book is incredibly important and I'm going to make sure to have this available for any parent/person who wants to read this. I'm so incredibly in love with this. I adore Tammy Plunkett and I don't even know her, and I will forever be so grateful for her and her son for putting this book into the world.
