Policy Focus: Parents—Not Government—Should Control Child Care

Carrie Lukas joins the podcast to discuss this month’s policy focus: Parents—Not Government—Should Control Child Care. We address the very real need parents face—finding affordable child care—and we explore the ways policymakers can reduce government burdens that make it expensive. It is possible to create an environment that includes diverse, accessible, and affordable child care.

Identity Crisis: Mom Shares How School Affirmed Her 11-Year-Old’s Trans Identity Without Her Consent

A very brave guest joins the podcast this week—Jennifer. She’s a mom who shares her story and her daughter’s story, and it’s one that has sadly become all too common. It’s the reality of how a young girl who wants to explore her sexuality and identity is then encouraged by classmates, teachers, and school counselors to come out as a boy without parental consent. Doing so has resulted in trauma, including her 11-year-old daughter contemplating cutting and suicide.  Jennifer has taken part in IWF’s “Identity Crisis” video series in hopes that she can help parents who feel lost, confused, and alone as a one-sided media echo chamber repeats the lie that in order to “save” your child, you must affirm your child’s chosen gender identity. So this conversation is to give you, parents, tools and insight so that you can help your own kids.--She Thinks is a podcast for women (and men) who are sick of the spin in today’s news cycle and are seeking the truth.
