ABOUT THE BOOK

Provides a road map so families can better navigate this rocky emotional terrain

Emphasizing communication and unconditional love, Davidson and Tobkes help parents untangle their own feelings, identify and overcome barriers to acceptance, encourage strong self-esteem in their child, handle negative or hostile reactions to their child’s sexuality identity, and more.

The combination of real-life stories of relationships of gay children and their parents makes When Your Child Is Gay: What You Need To Know stand out from other books on the gay experience.  In each chapter, Tobkes provide tips to help parents and gay children avoid difficult relationships and heartache that he sees so often in his practice. The topics that are covered are denial, guilt, fear, anger, shame, loss, to arrive at acceptance.
