Trans-Parenting Podcast Episode 9: An Interview with Darlene Tando, LCSW

Posted on Oct 26, 2016 | 2 comments

In Episode 9 of the Trans-Parenting podcast, I sat down to chat with Darlene Tando, a licensed clinical social worker who recently appeared on the Dr. Phil show. In that episode, a mom and her teen were on to talk about the mom’s struggle accepting her daughter’s transition.

Darlene is also the author of “The Conscious Parent’s Guide to Gender Identity: A Mindful Approach to Embracing Your Child’s Authentic Self,” which you can purchaseĀ on Amazon.

    I am noticing that this podcast appears to be your latest item. Are you still an active web-site?

    I was an out Transsexual child growing up during the 1950s and 1960s. There was nothing – nothing for parents, nothing for Transsexual children. Thank you for doing something for current Trans children.


  2. Dear Debi,
    I am so proud of you for your outspokenness about transitioning and gender. Your daughter is very fortunate. I know life will be difficult for your family, because the world is unkind…I wish you all great success and happiness.
