Helping Your Gender-Expansive Child with Teasing

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Teasing is a part of the sub-culture in schools and within peer relationships. Those raising gender-expansive youth often want to protect their child from this, and prevent it from happening at all. Unfortunately this often translates to asking the child to change something about themselves. In this workshop, we will explore how to empower and support your gender-expansive child. We will be discussing specific tools parents can use to both stay connected to their children to stay informed about what is going on socially, how to build the child's ego strength, as well as how to teach their children how to respond to any teasing that may occur.
