If you want to raise your children to be gender-conscious, here are some ways to do it:

1. Start Early: It’s never too early to start talking to your children about gender or to try to find teachable moments, such as showing them it’s okay to play with whatever toys they want. Kids learn through creativity and they have huge imaginations that shouldn’t be limited.
