6. You're already doing it.

Good for you for asking, but it sounds like you have a pretty good handle on it.

My youngest child announced they were non-binary a few years ago, shortly after puberty. The hardest part for me, honestly, is the singular "they/them" (I'm a grammar nazi of the highest order). But I make it work because I love them and want them to be happy.

Pronouns aren't the most important thing, but they are important, so make sure which ones your friends prefers (and it's okay to ask), and then use them.

Cute story: When I was talking with my NB child once about the difficulty transitioning, they said, kind of tongue in cheek, "For me, it's all about boobs and pronouns."
