Chelsea Handler, Parenting, Gender & Us

A few months ago, we spent the day with Chelsea Handler talking about parenting, gender and what it’s like raising a gender nonconforming child.

Screen Shot 2016-06-01 at 9.19.50 PMSee some of our time together on the latest episode of her Netflix show Chelsea (Season 1, Episode 10). It’s all about adventures in parenting. She made us laugh, we made her dinner, Chase flirted with her and C.J. called her a racist. You know, the usual. Click here for full episode.

    Just saw you on Chelsea and I want to say bravo! I think you and your husband are amazing people for letting CJ be who he is and not putting constraints on him. I hope and pray that more and more parents can learn from you. Watching your segment filled my heart with hope an joy. both of your sons are so very lucky to have such wonderful and loving parents.

  2. I absolutely loved this episode, and seeing your family being represented and also representing other like families was just the best! Cheers!

    I saw this segment and had to let you know that CJ is possibly the cutest child I have ever seen – and you really are setting an amazing example for other families. ❤

    What a beautiful family ❤

    Watching Chelsea and I see you! I had to pause and run over here to your site and cheer and now I’m gonna watch the segment. 🙂

    That was hilarious- Loved it! Both your boys seem very sweet and well raised! Good job Mom & Dad!

    I watched the episode last night! It was so great and I laughed a lot. Chase seems so much older than his age. I had two favorite moments, when CJ said to Chase “No offence” and Chase responded “none taken”. Such a great respectful interaction and so adult. My other was when CJ called Chelsea racist. I nearly spit out my drink. Your kids are amazing. Great, real and educational episode!

  8. Staci says:

    I never thought I’d find someone that was so similar to my son! He’s just about to turn 5 and he is exactly like CJ in that he likes his body, he thinks/knows he’s a boy, but he only wants to do ‘girl’ things and wear ‘girl’ clothes. I will have to go find this on Netflix.

  9. Michelle says:

    Oh my goodness he’s such a sweetie and they’re both so polite! I’m just awwing all over the place here.

  10. Dan Woog says:

    So great to see photos of CJ! My favorite kid is growing up!

    “What are the FBI going to do? Bring you some pants?”
    That right there should be the title of your next book. PMSL

    wow. what a lovely family. CJ is even cuter than I imagined. And Chase has your facial features. Congrats on a lovely family.
