    I've Adapted

    When I began tyo suspect my son was gay - when he was using the internet for cybersex - I was nervous and apprehensive. I didn't know how I could cope. But I told my son that he didn't have to hide and that whatever he tried or didn't try, I would be there for him. Now, almost a...

    My teenage son recently admitted he is gay - it was an accidental "outting" - but he wants to remain closeted to the rest of the world, even to part of the immediate family living in our home... Is this even possible? Is it healthy? How do I care for him without accidently...

    Came Out On Facebook!

    Yep, the first I knew was I was asleep on the couch and my 18 year old daughter woke me holding her laptop, saying: "have you seen this?". She was showing me my 14 year old son's latest Facebook status, it said: "haters gonna hate, but I'm gay". I was stunned, as he had hidden it...

    Maturity is respecting other people . Their point of view , their race , their sexuality. A lot of people don't have this and it makes me sad for them.
