Parents with transgender children

Friday, October 31st, 2008

It was pleasant to note the renewed interest in Lynda Langley’s autobiographical book, He’s My Daughter, in which she shares her experience of her adult son’s transgender transition. 

Clearly there is still a real need for parents with transgender children for encouragement and guidance to help them understand and accept the radical path taken by their son or daughter.

With warmth, humour, and lots of love, Lynda survived the initial harrowing days and sleepless nights, enabling her to accept her son Tony’s transition to daughter Toni. Together with her husband and Tony’s younger brother, the whole family learnt to adjust as necessary, while coping with the usual problems of ageing parents, unemployment and family illness, experienced by all families. 

A special book for special families…
