The Son/Daughter game is used to show how a baby’s sex is determined by the man’s sperm, even though the man and woman both contribute to a pregnancy. This includes instructions and game cards. This game is part of the USAID-funded Fertility Awareness for Community Transformation (FACT) Project’s Pragati intervention game series, which uses games to diffuse information about fertility awareness and family planning to individuals, catalyzing conversation with others. The games also facilitate discussion around social and gender norms—unspoken rules that govern behavior—in order to challenge those norms that negatively influence family planning use. See full Pragati Manual for more information.
