Product Description
Straight talk for Gay parents - a practical guide to parenting challenges * Includes examples and interactive exercises to help you through conflicts, define and protect your family, and celebrate and nourish a proud and loving household * Covers the practical realities of laying a foundation for healthy parenting, coming out once and for all, finding culturally sensitive schools, and making decisions about spirituality and family celebrations * Also includes a section on special concerns of single parents, the complications of breaking up, and the legal concerns of protecting your family * The author is both parenting educator and a lesbian mother Today, more and more gays and lesbians are choosing to reinvent what family means by making up their own minds how they would like to go about having children and raising them. The practical challenges these families face are enormous, including the all-too-familiar consequences of a society-wide disconnect that insists on equating 'family values' with various forms of homophobic intolerance. The Queer Parent's Primer is an empathetic guide that offers gay and lesbian parents real-life parenting solutions to the many practical challenges they face.
