Talking Gender with Tiny Humans
During last week’s lgbtq+ policy meeting, a sentiment came up that I’ve heard many times before:
“How would I explain this transgender stuff to my child? He’s only seven, there’s no way he’d understand!”
‘Concerned parents’ often suggest that transgender identity and gender non-conformity are impossible topics to discuss with a young child.
Here’s the thing: kids are smart, and talking with them about gender is super easy. If you’re not sure where to start, this post is a primer.
