Will you be OK if your child is Gay? Raising money for InsideOUT

I think as parents it it a good thing to think and ponder about... You have a beautiful child, who you love more than anything, but I want you to ask the question... If your child identifies as LBGTQIA (Lesbian, Bisexual, Gay, Transgender, Queer/ Questions their sexuality, Intersex or Asexual)... will you be OK? I put this first question towards my Facebook followers and friends... "Will you be OK if your child is gay" and the results were overwhelmingly positive, but many had never actually thought about it. Many of the people asked had overwhelmingly said that nothing would change the love that they have for their child. Some were strangely incensed that the question even needed to be aske

"I bet that kid has a crush on her!"... It never actually crossed my mind that violence towards her could mean that he likes her? Is this still a thing? If I had of said that a girl punched

Life experiences for children, am I not giving them enough?

I posted up on the Facebook page that I was taking my kids out to a restaurant for the first time and asked if anyone else took their kids out to restaurants. There were lots that did, and some that didn't and some that questioned how they were ever going to learn how to behave in a restaurant if I didn't take them... which is true, how are they supposed to know how to behave in a restaurant? Or on a plane ride (we haven't done that yet either), or in a movie theatre... nope they have never even been to a movie! How are they supposed to know how to behave while walking the streets of Paris, or on a private jet? I have no idea! The more I thought about it the more I wondered if we have been d
