I just did a guest post for Teens Today with Vanessa Van Petten, a site for parents of teenagers. Van Petten, 22, wrote You’re Grounded!: How to Stop Fighting and Make the Teenage Years Easier while she was still in high school, basing it on dozens of interviews with teens, parents, and teachers. She continues to offer insights from a teen or near-teen perspective through her blog and speaking engagements. She asked if I would help those of her readers who want to talk about LGBT issues with their teens (LGBT or not), but didn’t know where to start.
My post offers a number of resources for non-LGBT parents of teens, but is not meant to be a comprehensive treatment of this complex subject. If you know of additional books, articles, or other guides, feel free to leave a comment here or at Teens Today. Thanks to Vanessa for reaching out to build acceptance and understanding.
