Gender Creative Parenting | Joint session with WPP, AWP, & The Guild
Note: Friday, 5 – 7 pm
Traditional models of gender & sexuality socialization are linked to adverse outcomes, including disparities in physical and mental health, economics, politics, and familial roles. When considering gender as a social construction, parents and other adults involved with raising children can mitigate harmful gendered stereotypes through Gender Creative Parenting (GCP). In this case, GCP refers to not assigning a gender to a child, using gender-neutral pronouns (they/them/their), and creating an environment that intentionally teaches that gender occurs on a spectrum and disrupts traditional binary gender stereotypes.
