When Anna Bianchi’s grandchild asked, “Nanny, you do know I’m a girl, don’t you?”, Anna recognised this as a pivotal, and daunting, moment in their relationship. She knew that to answer her grandchild, who had been assigned male at birth, her own attitudes, assumptions and beliefs about gender would need to be examined.
With reassuring honesty and openness, Anna draws deeply on four areas: her own experience, current research, interviews with children and their families, and a discussion of power, both in society and between children and adults. She shows how the inner journey of the adult inevitably impacts on the outer journey of the child and, given the significance of this, offers a step-by-step guide to become an ally to the gender-expansive child.
For anyone eager to understand their child’s gender experience, or to learn how best to accept, support and protect them, this book will provide knowledge, reassurance and the confidence to do so.
Becoming An Ally to the Gender-Expansive Child is based on the author’s experience caring for her grandchild. As such, she provides a much needed perspective on an ally’s journey through the Gender Matrix. Guided by her own family’s process, and by the love for her grandchild, Bianchi gently coaches others to challenge their own gender assumptions, moving not only through acceptance, but towards an actual social transformation
Anna Bianchi has a background in social work, personal development and training and facilitation work.
Becoming An Ally to the Gender-Expansive Child. 248 pages. Paperback.

Boundaries are the ways we communicate our needs.
They are what allow us to feel safe among strangers, in everyday interactions, and in our closest relationships. When we have healthy boundaries, we have a strong foundation in an uncertain world. And when someone crosses your boundaries, or you cross someone else’s, the results range from unsettling to catastrophic.
In this book, bestselling author Dr. Faith Harper offers a full understanding of issues of boundaries and consent, how we can communicate and listen more effectively, and how to survive and move on from situations where our boundaries are violated. Along the way, you’ll learn when and how to effectively say “no” (and “yes”), troubleshoot conflict, recognize abuse, and respect your own and others’ boundaries like a pro.
