In this episode of IGA Today, Jubi Ducher interviews Jennifer Carr about parenting her transgender daughter and about Jennifer's book "Be Who You Are!"

Jennifer Carr is a writer, blogger, public speaker and advocate for transgender and all gender diverse individuals. She shares her journey of self awareness inspired by parenting her gender diverse child on her internationally celebrated blog http://www.TodayYouAreYou.com . She can be emailed at jen@jennifercarrbooks.com

She uses a pseudonym to protect the safety of her family.

Jennifer is the proud mother of a child who knew she born in the wrong body at 4 years old. “Be who you are,” Jennifer told her daughter as school, clothes, family and pronouns became increasingly difficult. Each day was another opportunity to live authentically, but there were abundant learning curves and life lessons around every corner. Jennifer's daughter socially transitioned to living as herself, a girl, shortly before her 6th birthday.
