Parenting Education: What Boys and Girls Are Made Of: Gender and Sexuality Diversity

Gone are days when boys are made of “snips and snails and puppy dog tails” and girls are made of “sugar and spice and everything nice”… or are they? Children are barraged with messages about gender and heterosexual norms everywhere they go – their homes, their schools, the media, and more. Do you know what hidden lessons they are learning? How do gender and sexuality affect everything from boys struggling in school to girls dropping out of the STEM pipeline, from sexual harassment to anti-gay bullying, from eating disorders to plastic surgery? How do parents, guardians, teachers, and schools provide safe environments for positive self-esteem, healthy identity development, and acceptance of differences?
