    Parenting teenagers is a challenging and complex project. During the extended transition from childhood to adulthood, adolescents are striving to answer profound human questions including “Who am I? What makes me unique? How can I love and be loved?” In addition to the usual challenges of parenting a teenager in our culture, parents with a gay or questioning teen face additional challenges from within – fear and sadness – and without – concerns about their child’s acceptance and harassment. Dr. Brush offers a brief, readable, yet substantive guide for parents facing this difficult parenting situation. Dr. Brush conveys the latest research and developing consensus on these issues without getting bogged down in clinical language. He strikes a skillful balance between reassuring parents that this parenting situation is manageable - and frankly exploring potential dangers. Throughout, he offers realistic strategies and suggestions conveyed in a straightforward and compassionate style. In... More > each topic, he gently challenges parents to be an assertive advocate for their child’s needs and rights. After reading this book, parents will feel supported and reassured that they can assist their child in navigating this difficult adjustment. Gay teens whose parents use this advice will more likely transit adolescence with a deep sense of nonjudgmental support which provides a foundation for self-esteem, coping skills and well-being. The result will hopefully be a well-adjusted young adult - a confident, unique individual. As a clinical psychologist working with families and individuals for 30 years, I highly recommend Caring for Your Gay Teen. Mike Bowers, Psy.D. Clinical psychologist, Denver, Colorado< Less
