In this interactive workshop we will explore the following questions together: What is gender? How have gender stereotypes impacted your own experience? What messages about gender is your child receiving in the wider world? And, most importantly, how can you cultivate a home that offers your child space to explore all parts of who they are without gender roles, gender stereotypes, or gendered limitations?
