Losing a Son/Gaining a They

Jean’s son has recently declared new pronouns, a new name, and a pan-sexual identity. They are there; the thinking and deciding has been done. But Jean and her husband are finding the change a bit daunting and are slower to climb on board with the correct terminology. Thirteen years of having a son with your chosen name is difficult to let go of and does not come without grieving a loss. We discuss how to accommodate each other with respect and mutual understanding so Jean no longer feels “cancelled in her own home”.Bonnie Harris, MS.Ed., director of Connective Parenting, 30+ years of coaching, teaching, and writing for parents. Website: bonnieharris.com Email: bh@bonnieharris.comBooks: When Your Kids Push Your Buttons (workbook available)            Confident Parents, Remarkable Kids:             8 Principles for Raising Kids You’ll Love to Live With Audio BooksThe Buttons Audio Course Counseling/CoachingAll books and audiobooks can be purchased here: https://bonnieharris.com/shop/Produced, mixed, and scored by Echo Finch www.echofinch.com
