  • I would stand up for my child and give those adults a piece of my mind if I don't kill them first Adults shouldn't be harassing children. I would teach my child to fight back and he/she won't get in trouble if she was just defending herself. If it's at school I would let the media know that the school does shit and allows anti-gay BS into their school.

  • Support them and Teach them to stand up for themselves. I went through it, and I did it alone... I don't want them to have to. But at the same time I feel they need to learn to deal with these kinds of things by themselves, cause mom isn't always going to be there to fight their fight.

  • I would support them and tell them I am proud of them for coming out and being brave about it. Even though at that age, I don't think you can label them yet.

  • Oh I didn't answer you OP. I would go to the school and have it stopped. If it didn't I would take my child out of that school! Sorry there is no room for bullying my child!

  • I am not really sure how I would handle that. I am not even so sure that a child of that age has the capability to understand that they really are bi-sexual. For me, that in itself would not be an easy acceptance. I would probably seek some counseling for both the child and myself first before I could confront anyone else. Some of us do not have experience with that, so how can we make judgements??

  • I would report it to the school and tell your daughter to stand tall! and of course be her support system always.
