  • This parenting issue is huge! All part of trying to maintain the slow shift of attitudes in a positive direction. As a parent myself, much of this rang very true. Quite how I would respond in the real world if either of my boys turned out to be gay, I can’t know for sure. Hopefully these words above will help make me the better Dad I would wish to be in such circumstances. Thanks guys. Keep up the great work!

  • hat was a tough read coz it recalled my own childhood all too accurately. Parents are human. They can screw up. This article should be made enforced reading for parents. It would equip them for gay kids much more effectively, imo.

  • Thanks for this story I do believe that this will mean a lot to someone out there
    I also stand for your meaning that parents should spend more time with their children and try to see the view from their side but ,I’m not saying this in defense of anyone, children when in a constantly changing world tend to do as they like and how they like it, thus keeping parent activity out ,so by saying this ,it’s not always the parents fault to what has happened ,I know that younger children tend to do as they are told but surely possesses the mind to think for them self at one stage or a another, I grew up very hard and my father almost never came home ,or when I was sleeping he would be home and the other way around ,but this never stopped him from having his drink and not paying attention to me or my brother
    So the debut can go on forever as to where the problem begins or lays.
