In September of 2018 the American Academy of Pediatrics published a policy statement calling for gender-affirming health care for all transgender and gender-diverse (TGD) youth. The policy is aimed at pediatricians trying to promote the health and positive development of young people who identify as TGD.

uh-PARENT-ly cohosts Tracy Weiner and Anne Johnsos admit this topic is unchartered territory for them, so they asked two parents of trans and gender-fluid kids to help them learn. Leonard Su and Liz Carlson explain the process of parenting children in flux.
