How does my child learn about gender?
Is gender different than sexuality?
Is it ok to let my son wear nail polish?
What do I say when people call my daughter a tomboy?
How do I help a child who has questions about gender?

In this webinar, we plan to tackle these questions with our panel of experts as we explore the topic of gender. Focusing on children 0-8, together, we will:

  • Identify the stages of healthy gender identity development
  • Discuss gender misconceptions and common concerns
  • Establish the value of examining and dismantling the gender stereotypes that children encounter
  • Explore how you can boost a young child’s confidence and sense of belonging
