“That’s A Family” Video
This video is 30 minutes in length, is reasonably priced and is GREAT!
Most families are not mom, dad and kids. This video shows all kinds of families, including those with two moms (lesbian) and two dads (gay). From the GLYS executive director: Although this film features children talking to other children, I have used it primarily with educators. It is a good tool for reminding teachers not to use “parents” or “mom and dad” all the time as well as to consider card making for mothers and fathers days. Can you use it in your classroom? You know the climate in your school/district! There is a study guide for the video.
