heteronormativity, Father’s Day, inclusivity, diverse families, school resources, handouts, alternative family, school yard conversations
Alexis: So at daycare I would always remind them ahead of time for father’s day that Joshua needs to make two separate things, uh, because you know stuff like that they wouldn’t think of automatically. Um, but in his kindergarten classroom, uh, they seem to really do a good job. I don’t know if it’s his teacher or if the whole school is just focusing on this concept of family and love in whatever configuration that is, so they haven’t – I haven’t encountered too many resources being sent home that seem very heteronormative, but I have noticed some, like you get handouts, and there’s like a mum and a dad and two kids, so that still happens, you know, on a fairly regular basis. And I haven’t seen any handouts or anything come home that shows an alternative family, um, and I’ve noticed by the things he says, I think it’s still the schoolyard conversations are still very heteronormative.
