About Us - DEI for Parents

The Goal

New children's books and (most) school curriculums about diversity and inclusion are evolving daily, which is fantastic news! But there's a gap that needs filling. To help kids really absorb the values they're learning so they can thrive in a fairer world, parents need simple instructions for embedding diversity and inclusion conversations into daily home life.

Our goal is to fill that gap with parenting handbooks that focus on specific diversity and inclusion issues (from a kid's perspective) like disability, religion, immigration, indigenous people, ageism, poverty, LGBTQ+, and gender equality.  

How Our Books Work

First, they're short. No need for a big time commitment. And no need to remember large chunks of parenting advice.

Each one of our guidebooks focuses on a stand-alone DEI topic so you don't have to buy a 300-page parenting book with chapters that don't really apply to you.

Also, each guidebook includes step-by-step instructions for the best way to get your message across - things like how to learn what your child already knows, how to explain the basics without losing their attention, how to answer inevitable questions, and what you can do around the house to support the moral you're trying to teach.

Lastly, our guidebooks are written to provide the greatest amount of ideas and suggestions using the least amount of words. Our author was a single mom, lived through the daily race against time, and knows how important it is to find what you need. Now!

Kids Ages

We write our guidebooks with parents of elementary-school kids in mind. That said, we're aware that there are different maturity levels at every age and parents know best what is and isn't appropriate for their own child.

Author Scoop

Trish Allison writes our guidebooks. Raising two children in a same-sex family gave Trish a unique perspective on the importance of teaching kids that everyone deserves kindness and respect.

She combined her experience as a parent, her career as a corporate communications writer in Silicon Valley, countless hours of child psychology research, a degree in English from U.C. Berkeley, and a long-ignored passion to write something meaningful -- into a collection of diversity and inclusion parenting handbooks.
