At a time when LGBTQ Americans are finding their rights under attack again, it’s important to teach our children to be allies.
The LGBTQ community is full of wonderful children who have a difficult time growing up. Often, that’s because their peers don’t understand or accept them. They can be targeted by bullying and it can have some truly tragic results.
Straight parents have the power to make changes that can save the lives of LGBTQ youth. The work truly starts at home, with our own families. It’s not enough to just explain what it is to be gay.
Kids also need to understand the struggles and risks that LGBTQ youth face. In doing so, we can hope some will be able to step up when it counts and help someone out.
Of course, these conversations don’t come easily to every family. Here are some ideas on what you can do to make sure your child is an ally to the LGBTQ community.
