Gender Neutral Parenting

Raising Kids With The Freedom To Be Themselves Rating:

Our culture has strict rules for acceptable behavior for men and women. But what about kids who fall outside the boundaries of prescribed roles? This book is a guide for parents in the practical application of Gender Neutral Parenting -- a parenting style based on respect for a child's self-identity and providing latitude in exploring their own version of gender and gender expressions.

In Gender Neutral Parenting you'll learn the five skills essential for GNP: Become Aware of Genderization; Become Aware of Your Gender Bias; Create a Gender Diverse Environment; Start a Dialog About Gender; Deal With Family and Friends and Dispelling Myths

With practical examples and real world scenarios, this book will give you the strong foundation needed to implement GNP in your home and with your children. This book is for any parent, grandparent, or childcare teacher that wants a guide to raising kids without the strict limitations of gender roles and who wants to engage kids in conversations that will make them savvy media consumers and critical problem solvers around issues of gender and equality.
