As we close this series on affirming parenting, we had the opportunity to talk with three different parents and get their unique take on raising kids in our world today. We hear from Rev. Kim Wildszewski and Candiace Czubernat on their perspective as queer parents raising young children. They each explain how their queerness has informed and enriched their parenting and what cis/straight parents can do when faced with their queer kids leaving family faith traditions. We also hear from John, a former conservative Christian church member, and his experience having one of his children come out to him as trans. While each of these parents has a different queer parenting story and advice, all of them agree- your job as a parent is to unconditionally love and support your child on their journey of discovering who they are.
