Raising Gender Healthy Kids

Raising Gender Healthy Kids

In our previous blog, we discussed gender expression, where things have gone wonky, and a possible explanation for how we got there. But there weren’t as many practical tips on how to raise your kids to be content in the body they were born in. No sense in...

The Genderbread Person, Part 1: Gender Identity

Forget the muffin man. Do you know the Genderbread Person? If not, you need to—and especially if you have kids. The Genderbread Person is now a commonly used craft for teaching kids (at least those young enough to be interested in anthropomorphic gingerbread cookies)...
