This episode of the Odd Mom Pod, hosted by Brittany, features a deeply personal and informative interview with Heather Hester, founder of Chrysalis Mama and host of the Just Breathe: Parenting Your LGBTQ+ Teen podcast. Heather shares her experiences growing up in a religious household, her transition to parenting consciously, and the challenges and triumphs of supporting her son Connor through his coming out as gay. Through their journey, Heather realized the importance of unconditional love, acceptance, and the need for substantial support systems for LGBTQ+ teens and their families. Heather discusses the transformative effect Connor's coming out had on family dynamics, leading her to seek resources, adjust parenting styles, and ensure a safe, supportive environment for Connor and her other children. The conversation also touches on the challenges of navigating safety, mental health, and identity exploration in the digital age. Heather's forthcoming book, 'Parenting with Pride: Unlearn Bias and Embrace, Empower, and Love Your LGBTQ+ Teen,' aimed at helping parents support their LGBTQ+ children, is previewed. The episode encourages a shift towards accepting and empowering individuality in parenting practices.
