Summary

Young children ages 5 to 12 describe how they feel when they hear put-downs of themselves or their families in this video for kids, their educators and parents. Children learn from subtle clues what society thinks about gender roles, same-sex parents and family differences. The children vividly describe how it feels to be teased when their families don't follow traditional gender roles. They talk about why bullies indulge in name-calling, and what they think should be done about it. By showing that they know what's wrong, the children challenge educators, parents and other kids to act positively to make schools and playgrounds safe and welcoming for everyone. This program uses interviews, animation and documentary footage to spark discussions about families, gender stereotypes and name-calling. It encourages all children to feel empathy and respect for their playmates.
