Sexuality Resource Center for Parents: Tools, Tips, and Tricks for Teaching Children about Human Sexuality

Parenting a Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, or Questioning Child

(For Parents of Children with Typical Development)

In one out of every four families, you will find someone who is lesbian, gay, bisexual, or trans. Add to that the number of children who are questioning their sexuality, and you begin to wonder why we still haven't made it a safe world for LGBTQ children.

At least you can make it a safer world for your child. When we set out to tell you how, we realized that there was no need to write a new article because there were some excellent articles already out there. Here are just five of them:

From Planned Parenthood...

In the "Tools for Parents" section of the Planned Parenhood website, you'll find Parenting LGBT and Questioning Kids.

From Advocates for Youth...

In the "Parents' Sex Ed Center" on the Advocates for Youth website, you'll find Ten Tips for Parents of a Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, or Transgender Child.

From PFLAG (Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays)...

In the "Need Support?" section of the PFLAG website, you'll find Our Children: Questions and Answers for Families of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Gender-Expansive and Queer Youth and Adults.

In the same section, you'll also find Our Trans Loved Ones: Questions and Answers for Parents, Families, and Friends of People Who Are Transgender and Gender Expansive.
