Podcasts for Parents: Stories Alive and My Trans Daughter
This week: stories for kids by kids and a mother discusses raising her transgender child.
Happy November, everyone. Shorter days mean more time to cuddle up and listen to podcasts! Here are this week's recommendations — as always, one for kids and one for parents.
FOR KIDS (all ages)
Stories Alive: Robo Trobo and the Talking Toilet (17 min)
Stories Alive is a new podcast that features original stories written by elementary school kids that are then professionally transformed into high-quality audio-theater. I particularly enjoyed the second story, Sadie's Inner Magic, about a young girl using her special magic as she enters a new school.
How to Be a Girl: Mama, I'm a Girl (7 min)
"When he was three years old, my son informed me that she was actually my daughter. I'm now the mother of a happy, confident little transgender girl, but it took a while to get here." In How to Be A Girl Seattleite Marlo Mack shares her journey as she and her daughter learn to navigate a world that doesn't quite know what to make of them.
