Parents need answers.

At the end of the day, it's parents who need answers to the inevitable questions their kids ask. And it's parents who will be having follow-up conversations, deciphering mixed messages, responding to homeschool lessons, and ultimately, steering the moral compass of the next generation.

Treat yourself to a great self-help book for adults teaching children about transgender identity. The author simplifies the issue, making it easier to explain to children. Its thought-provoking but basic approach makes the book great. It goes beyond definitions by providing real-world examples and practical ways to quietly integrate transgender respect into daily conversations and activities.

Not only did I appreciate the compassion and respect this book instills for teaching and discussing Native American history, but it also highlights with specific examples how kids receive information at different developmental stages. Revising history is no small task but parenting is also no small task! This is a wonderful contribution.

This book has excellent suggestions and practical tips for the conversations and teachings we can and should have with our children. I love that it starts with listening.

what our customers are saying:
This insightful book provided valuable guidance on teaching fairness and empathy to young boys. There was a lot of practical advice and many examples I hadn't thought about before. Some of my favorite things about this book was that there is a "More Resources" section where I could look up more information or look into something specific the author mentioned in the chapter. Chapter 3, "Help Him Cultivate Empathy," was my favorite chapter.
