Re-parenting

I’m re-read­ing a book I read a long, long time ago, The 12 Steps to Self-Par­ent­ing for Adult Chil­dren. I don’t twelve-step, but I remem­bered hav­ing such a book and was look­ing for it to loan out to a friend. I was stuck in the car and did­n’t have any­thing else inter­est­ing at hand and I start­ed re-read­ing it. This book usu­al­ly refers to your “inner par­ent” more than a “high­er pow­er.” I’m get­ting very annoyed, though, that male pro­nouns are always used when refer­ring to the inner par­ent, and female pro­nouns are used for the inner child. I don’t recall notic­ing that when I read it back around 1991 or thereabouts.
