Beyond Binaries: What My Eldest Would Like Other Parents To Know About Neuro and Gender Diverse Kids.

In this deeply personal episode of "Midlife AF," join me for a warm conversation with my transgender son, Bug.

Together, we open up about our unique experiences, discussing what it was like for Bug to grow up with a mother struggling with problematic drinking, our family's journey around neurodivergence, and the significance of understanding and supporting trans kids.

With love and vulnerability, Bug and I share our stories, offering insights and lessons including:

πŸ‘‰ Bug reflects on his childhood, growing up with a parent who had problematic drinking, and the impact it had on him.
πŸ‘‰ I share the positive changes that occurred when I stopped drinking and became more present for my family.
πŸ‘‰ We explore neurodivergence within our family and the importance of acceptance and understanding.
πŸ‘‰ Bug shares his personal journey as a transgender individual, highlighting the connection between neurodivergence and gender identity.
