how do i explain homosexuality to my 4 yr old daughter ?

A few days ago we were watching tv and 2 men kissed, my daughter told me " mom that's not ok boys can only kiss women" i panicked, i didn't knew what to a say, i only told her" i know but there are men that kisses men because they like each other". I don't know what else to tell her as i think she needs a better explanation and i have a gay family member.

  • I tell my kids, that most of the time girls like boys and boys like girls, but some girls love girls and some boys love boys. I tell them it is fine, that you love who you love. I would also say that when she gets older she can love who she wants.

  • I think your explanation is OK considering her age.
