Toddlers & Preschoolers Toddlers & Preschoolers

Would you allow your child(ren) to....

Posted by   + Show Post
Play with a schoolmate whose parents are gay? I ask because today at preschool a little girl (Whom we will call Sally) that my girls play with almost everyday told them that she can't play with them anymore. Because Sally's mother told her that I'm a lesbian and I date women. (Which yes I am and I do. But I don't feel that is any of this other mothers concern!) My girls know I date women. My twins remember my ex. I explained to them early on that some people have a mommy and a daddy. While others have 2 mommys or 2 daddys. And sometimes kids only have a mommy or a daddy. But all that matters is that the child is loved and cared for. My girls were seriously hurt that Sallys mom told her that she can't play with them because of something that I honestly feel is totally out of my control! So ladies would you allow your child(ren) to play with someone whose parents are gay?

Im sorry to hear that.Some ppl should really understand the crap they put in their kids head. Like you said,that has nothing to do with your childrens playtime or developing social skills with other children. I would pull Sallys mom to the side and tell her about herself in a polite but direct way.

Quoting do11face:

Of course!

But I'm not a bigoted asshole.
Unfortunately, there are a lot of those out there.

Of course I would!  It's sad that there are parents out there that continue to teach their kids bigotry like this. :(

Absolutely, I'm not a judgmental asshole, though. As long as our children get along, and your dd/ds is not a mean brat, I couldn't care less about how you live your life.

I would! I think it would be good exposure to different lifestyles and if it turns out that she is a lesbian I want her to know that I am supportive of her. She will learn that through my actions towards the gay community more than just words. And I want her to grow up learning to respect other lifestyles.

The sexual orientation of another child's parent doesn't concern me. I worry about whether my kids friends are kind to them. And if my kids were to ever spend time at their house, I worry about whether they have guns or weapons out, porn, drugs, drinking, smoking, swearing, rated R movies, rated M video games or if the parents are making out in front of my kids. The gender of who the mom or dad is attracted to is not a concern.

Being gay isn't an issue with us.
