Ep 27: Tammy Plunkett speaks about having a transgender child, and giving yourself processing time as a parent
Tammy and I spoke about her children, and the real emotions and processing time you need as a parent. Although she speaks of that processing being very separate from the acceptance of your child. One does not exclude the other.
Tammy Plunkett left her career as a registered nurse to stay home and raise her four children. It turned out that she could only take so much Sesame Street and returned to her first love—writing. Tammy spent a few years working solely in fiction then switched gears to non-fiction while she practiced as a life coach and writing coach. After her third child came out as transgender, she focused her work on helping parents of transgender kids. She is contracted to Jessica Kingsley Publishers for her next book Beyond Pronouns: The Essential Guide for Parents of Trans Kids releasing in the summer of 2022.
