I know it's been forever since I posted, but I'm going to try and get back into this. So here it goes:
Today I have been thinking a lot about parents accepting their children for who they are. I know that many, if not most, parents do this. We want our children to be happy and healthy and to grow up to be happy, loving, healthy, stable adults. We want what's best for our child and we want them to grow and
For example, if you suspect that your child may be homosexual and that's not what you want for them are you going to try and steer them in a more heterosexual direction with sports or dance or the people they socialize with? If your daughter acts too much like a boy or you son acts too much like a girl are you, as a parent, going to try and make them behave the opposite just for your own comfort and happiness? Because, to me, that's not right. Why not just let your child be the person that they are happy being. Let your son take ballet and wear pink, if that's what makes him happy. Let your daughter play football and wear baggy clothes, if that's what makes her happy.
If you're afraid that your child is going to be the opposite of what you want want them to be, then you need to look inside yourself and figure out where that fear is coming from. What was instilled in you that made you fear so much? Because here's the thing, just because your daughter acts masculine or your son acts feminine doesn't mean they're going to be homosexual and just because your daughter acts feminine and your son acts masculine doesn't meant they're going to be straight. It has nothing to do with their behavior and what their sexual orientation will be. The other thing too is that they're children and you won't know what they're sexual orientation is until they tell you. Be that they tell
So please, just love and accept your children for who they are. Let them play and learn about the world around them. Let them be free to be who they want to be. In the long run they'll be happier and so will you. You do not need to worry about the person they will become while they are still a child, just let them be a child and have fun.
