Navigating the World with a Gender-Fabulous Child

A new 1st day of school

R will be transitioning  at school tomorrow. Summer is just too far away and she was having trouble with pretending  to be a boy at school.
The principal  called a staff meeting  to make staff aware that he expects  and DEMANDS that R be respected  and that he will not tolerate their personal views effecting the way R is treated.  Only 2 staff members  seemed distressed  but the news of having  a transgender  child at school.
R doesn’t  care what they think. The fact is that out of ALL that staff there were only 2. My friend heard some of the staff talking about  how wonderful  it is that R can be herself and demand that others treat her with dignity  and respect  because they knew people (family or friends) that couldn’t when they were in school.
I cannot  say it enough… my child  is my hero!
