For LGBT youth, one of the hardest things may be coming out to parents. After all, a parents’ reaction to the fact that one’s child is gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender can have a profound impact on that child. Susan Berland, certified parenting coach and mom of an LGBT son says, “Over the years, I’ve spoken with many LGBT people who never resolved the issue with their parents or their parents never resolved feelings. I’ve seen the impact this rejection has on these adult children long-term. Many have dealt with substance abuse, some have never really had successful relationships.” Annie talks with Susan about providing parents with the support and acceptance they need to love and accept their LGBT children of any age.
