  • tell your child what? that you are a kind and loving person? that you are a caring person? what do you want to tell the child? Parents don't tell kids what they do behind closed doors. If they ask, then answer but keep private stuff private. My father was gay. He never had to tell me he was gay. It was none of my business. I loved him for him not for his sexual preference

  • Lesbian straight what ever..
    you are your childs mother.
    I would always be honest with them.
    Be proud of who you are.

  • Um your child will end up noticing that he or she has 2 mothers at some point. If your proud of it then why be sacred to tell your child? you should not be scared to tell anyone including your child. Kids catch on quicker than you think

  • You need to be proud of who you are, lesbian or not. If you are afraid to tell her that you are lesbian, at some point she is going to realize that you are hiding something from her. Also, by being telling her the truth and being proud of who you are you are teaching her confidence and pride. Two things kids need growing up in the world today.

  • Enough, you've posted several times now, this can't be real.

  • No, why would you be scared unless you're self-conscience with your sexuality?
    I went to school with a kid who had 2 mothers. He was always one of the "cool" kids, nobody ever made fun of him or anything. He is straight and has his shit together

  • Would you want your child to be afraid to be who they are? By not telling your child, you are telling them that they should be afraid to be who they are.

  • I don't think it's a big deal, it should just be "how it is" no need to tell them if you know what I mean.

  • My personal feelings on the issue aside, if you are going to be a mother, you need to be honest with your children. They are smarter than you think and they deserve the truth (though not necessarily a ton of details).
