Consciously Parenting the Gender-Expansive Child

Conscious parenting is an important element in raising a happy, secure child. When raising a gender-expansive child, conscious parenting becomes even more important in order to help the child be their authentic self. This workshop will cover the basics of conscious parenting, and explore how staying conscious throughout the child’s gender journey can help both the parent(s) and the child. Staying within and trusting oneself and one’s child can help immensely when dealing with others’ reactions, choosing the next step in the journey, and coping with the parent’s own emotional responses all while remaining close and connected to their child.
