Ten weeks of accessible, thoughtful exercises are designed to help you gain perspective, challenge your assumptions and fears, and better understand and connect with your kid. Marc Campbell draws on his experience as a licensed mental health counselor working with queer youth and their families to provide resources and real help for parents with LGBTQ+ children. The world may not always be kind to queer kids, but your home and family can be.
