I was writing an epic-length response to a great question someone asked, and realized that I had better give it a whole different lease on life as a post, the better to tempt more of you astute readers to add to my answer. So here was the question Sheri Bheri posed, in a comment on the previous post:
Do you have any advice for the other parents in a preschool, to make it easier on the children of lesbians?
In a nice turnabout, by “other” parents here, she means “hetero.” She’s asking from the standpoint of a supportive straight parent:
I want my daughter exposed to more diverse people than *I* was. Because Iâ€™ve found myself â€˜handicappedâ€™ later on in life, because I have a hard time knowing the right thing to say and do.
I’m going to answer with that kind of reader in mind, and hope that all you all chime in with your own suggestions.
