He emphasized the importance of clarifying and affirming their child’s pronouns, explaining that parents should ask, “‘How would you like me to refer to you?’ or ‘What pronouns would you like me to use?”

He also notes parents should “keep in mind it’s important to check with your kid before using these pronouns around extended family, friends, and other people in your life.”

For parents who feel they need more guidance in supporting their child can reach out to therapeutic resources like The Dorm for parent coaching, family groups, or individual therapy.
