I am a mother of 2 children ages 9 and 10. I am so confused and don't even know where to begin.... I have so many questions, but don't want to offend anybody, judge, or be an ignorant parent. So I will start with I believe my 10 year old son may be Gay. I don't know if he would know at this age or would even know what he is dealing with.
I would like to say I would accept my son for who is he, but I try to be honest, and I don't know how I would handle the situation. I believe I am taking the first step in writing this post.
So here is a story of me and one of my closest friends. We have been friends now for 18 years. We were driving on the freeway and she looks at me and says I am bisexual. I just continued driving and said SO? I didn't know what I was suppose to say. Her telling me that she was bisexual didn't have any impact on our friendship.
I also must state that at the time I was not following the footsteps of the Lord. I have recently been reading the BIBLE and this has caused more confusion in my life than ever. The Bible does tell me I am not to judge, that judging will be done on judgement day.
I have recently begun asking more questions and it just doesn't seem as though she wants to provide the answers..... So here I am. I don't ever want to have to bury my child because I was ignorant.
I tell myself that I am just being ridiculous that my son is not Gay. I know this statement is not going to make me popular here, but I am just trying to be honest.
I hope that I can get answers to my questions, so that if the day comes and my Son says to me Mom I am Gay, I can say I understand. I know I will always love him regardless, there is no question to that. HE is my SON FIRST and anything else seconde.
I guess my first question is this about what age do you know you are gay? I have so many, but just don't know how to ask...
