Dear Beloved Reader, we're going to be real with you. We're asking you to join our membership program so we can become fully financially sustainable (and you get some cool perks too!) With plummeting ad rates across the media industry, we're at an urgent risk of shutting down. And we don't want you to face Trump and his kind without the unique resources we provide. If everyone reading this only gave $12, we could raise enough money for the entire year in just one day. For the price of a single lunch out, you can help save us. We're an independent feminist media site led entirely by people of color. If Everyday Feminism has been useful to you, please take one minute to keep us publishing the articles you've come to rely on us for. Thank you!
While we strive to teach children so they become responsible adults, too often we teach them to not trust themselves. And then we wonder why there are so many “broken children, living in grown bodies, mimicking adult lives.”
If your child is an introvert, how do you honor their needs while also encouraging confident self-expression? These ideas can help you discover the most supportive ways to do that with your introverted child.
