For tips to make Mother’s Day and everyday more inclusive, check out SesameWorkshop.org.

  1. Talk about all kinds of families. Not every family has one mom and one dad. Make it safe to celebrate any supportive relationship a child has.
  2. Ask children in LGBTQ families for direction and follow their lead. Use their words when talking about their families.
  3. Talk to older children about gender stereotypes. Ask about the qualities that mothers and fathers have or the roles they often play and why these have been culturally assigned to each gender. Ask if either a mom or dad could have these qualities or fill these roles.
