From Drs. Jenny MacKenzie and David Huebner comes this 35-minute documentary for parents on what to do, and how to react when your child comes out. From LeadWithLoveFilm.com:
“What do I do if my child is gay?” Lead With Love is a 35-minute documentary created to help answer that question. Our goal is to provide comfort, information, and guidance for parents who have recently learned that their son or daughter is lesbian, gay, or bisexual. The film follows four families as they share their honest reactions to hearing that their child is gay, including the intense emotions, fears, and questions that it raised. Interviews with psychologists, teachers, and clergy provide factual answers to parents’ most commonly asked questions, as well as concrete guidance to help parents keep their children healthy and safe during this challenging time.
If you are a parent of a gay, lesbian, or bisexual child, we applaud your courage in looking for resources to help support your family. This film was made for you. If you are someone else who cares about these issues, we hope that you will enjoy this entertaining and informational film, and share it with others. Thank you for your interest.
Such a beautiful film. The film can be watched on the website, and is well worth 1/2 hour of your time.
Want to know the secret behind raising the perfect child?
BE A LESBIAN!
A study that has been following children raised by lesbian parents for the past 24 years has concluded that not only are the children healthy, they’re generally smarter, nicer, and better behaved than those raised by male-female couples. (Take that Mike Fuckabee Huckabee!)
The results of the U.S. National Longitudinal Lesbian Family Study were published today in Pediatrics magazine and found that “daughters and sons of lesbian mothers, all conceived through donor insemination, were rated higher than their peers in social, academic, and overall competence, and lower in aggressive behavior, rule-breaking, and social problems, on standardized assessments of psychological adjustment.” While there have been many studies about the children of gay and lesbian parents, this is the first one to follow children from conception through adolescence. So, you can play Mozart for your baby when it’s in the womb all you want, you can get him/her into that fancy pre-school, and enroll the kid in all the extra-curricular activities but until there is some girl-on-girl action involved, your offspring will probably be inferior.
