Forget feather boas, spiked heels and lady beards—the word 'Transgender' has been reclaiming it's innocent definition and challenging the long associated stigma attached to it.

Author Catherine Thorpe, who supported her daughter's transition from a male-to-female identity before high school, is advocating for early parental acceptance in order to help improve the lives of youth everywhere.

In, an unwanted penis, Thorpe helps parents navigate the confusion and fear that surround gender identity and offers strategies for eliminating expectations and learning to accept their children without conditions.

In a Dr. Phil meets Nanny McPhee parenting style, Thorpe urges parents to stop parenting gender and start parenting the child you've been given.
