34 - Poly with Kids

We are super excited to be interviewing Gracie X.  Gracie is a polyamorous author, director, actress, and mom of two kids.  She regularly contributes to The Huffington Post, and her new book Wide Open: My Adventures in Polyamory, Open Marriage, and Loving On My Own Terms just went on sale! We have a billion questions for her about being a parent while also being poly.  Some of the things we cover include:

  • How much to communicate to your kids
  • Choosing whether to introduce new partners to your kids
  • Different poly family makeups
  • The benefits of communal living
  • Dealing with negative reactions from others, including her own personal experience dealing with a legal custody battle
  • Her one piece of advice for people who are interested both in being poly and in being parents!

You can find out more about Gracie and purchase her book on her website GracieX.com.
