Could I get a professional development certificate for this webinar?
Hi Wendy! I’ve sent a professional development certificate your way.
This was wonderful! I have written all three authors down to order their books. I would appreciate a certificate of completion.
Hi Dawn, We’ll send a PD certificate your way.
Thank you for posting the list of LGBTQ books LGBTQ+ Book List and Resources
LGBTQ+ Collection. Becuase now I will know at a glance which books to stay away from. Sexuality books for children are unacceptable. Promoting such ideas and programming children to think that way is unacceptable. Just becuase 1% of the population accepts this, doesn’t mean it is okay or alright to be teaching children. The rest of us disagree and feel that these kinds of books are wrong for children. These things that are going on in the schools where people are dressing up as the opposite sex and reading to children is appalling. And 99% of the population agrees with us. Keep your identities to yourself. Keep you sexuality to yourself. You don’t see any of the rest of the 99% population promoting these types of things to children. You are causing gender confusion in children.
