Sometimes the real problem is that parents, subtly or explicitly, demonstrate preference for one gender over another. Make certain that you always affirm your child for being the unique person God created him or her to be. Tape the following Scripture verse in a place where your child can see it, and bless them by reading it aloud with them whenever possible:

“For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.” Psalm 139:13-16
