As the traditional Shabbat children’s blessings are gendered, here is an alternative blessing to use with children of any gender. 

We give thanks for the blessing that is you, 

Your being, 

Your becoming
 

Every day we witness your growth,

Your curiosity, 

Your persistence
 

And we give thanks

For every new lesson 

As you become, 

More and more each day, 

The person you are meant to be.
