The changing family

This BBC program is eye-opening when considering how we condition our children for gender. I highly recommend watching these two episodes.

14 ladies gathered in the Spring Creek lounge room. We welcomed Belinda Macartney, our guest speaker, and had how minds opened to the role and challenges of a marriage celebrant.

The discussion began  and we covered a range of issues from the legality of vows and marriage itself, statistics on divorce rates and the trend that people are staying married for longer, the sensitivities of not knowing your biological roots, appropriate role models for children in same sex relationships, in particular we discussed the need for a father role model. We talked about extended family models and how non-family members can take on family roles.

We all left with new ideas to consider.
