Unraveling Bias

In her new book Unraveling Bias: How Prejudice Has Shaped Children for Generations and Why It’s Time to Break the Cycle, Dr. Brown will uncover what scientists have learned about how children are impacted by biases because of their race and ethnicity, gender, gender identity, and sexual orientation, and explore how biased policies from the past and present (from segregating schools because of race to banning trans students from playing school sports) can be changed.

Parenting Beyond Pink and Blue

A guide that helps parents focus on their children’s unique strengths and inclinations rather than on gendered stereotypes to more effectively bring out the best in their individual children, for parents of infants to middle schoolers.

Normalize these things. You aren't being selfish. Taking a break -- from work, from chores, from commitments, yes even from our children -- helps to boost our psychological fortitude. How can you rest / chill / do nothing at some point this week?

For example, do you prefer "unisex" or "gender neutral"?

@nowthisnews @ChristiaBrown Worth emphasising that toys themselves are actually all gender neutral. It's the colour coding and labelling that's often not gender neutral. It should stop. And there's no need for boys and girls aisles. Thanks to @LetToysBeToys many stores in the UK organise aisles by interest.

Representation Matters

Regardless of gender identity, kids and teens want, and need, to be seen and affirmed. Representation and actual knowledge matters. This shouldn't be confined to one day a year.   Read More
