THE answer to this question deeply concerns parents.
They want to know how they can best raise their children. Many would have us believe that nothing can be done to foster the development of healthy gender identity and heterosexual orientation in children. But the clinical experience of Dr. Nicolosi and others, along with a careful look at the professional literature, indicates otherwise. In this groundbreaking book, Joseph Nicolosi uncovers the most significant factors that contribute to children’s healthy sense of themselves as male or female. Listening to moving recollections from ex-gay men and women who describe what was missing in their own childhoods, Dr. Nicolosi provides clear insight for identifying potential developmental roadblocks and gives practical advice to parents for helping their children securely identify with their gender. Replete with personal stories from parents, children and ex-gay strugglers, A Parent’s Guide offers compassion and hope for all those parents who seek to lay a foundation for a healthy heterosexual identity in their children.
