My daughter identifies as Queer. Although this generation are fluid, labels mean little. Itís rather awe inspiring tbh
This is not advice, just another mumís experience to consider:
She knows we only care if she is happy and that we donít want her sexuality to define her, nor for her to feel the need to either announce it or hide it.
It just is, like her parents heterosexuality and may change over time or may not,
So all in all we took the ďthatís nice dearĒ approach
Which seems to have worked, sheís 15 and has asked Iíd if I want to go on the Pride March with her and her lovely friends, who have so many sexualities between them that we donít need to talk about either.
I think we risk making mountains of molehills sometimes.
Both schools and our children are very different with far less tolerance for bigotry than in previous days.
Sorry no book advice there just a shared experience
