    Default How would you feel...

    ...if your teenage child told you they were a homosexual?

    What would you say?

    I would scoop them up into my arms and tell them I love them unconditionally, and that they have my full support. Then I'd throw a party if they wanted us to celebrate! I'd feel very relieved that they felt comfortable enough to tell me. I'd research online the various ways a parent can support their child.

    I would be happy that s/he felt comfortable enough to tell me,
    Provided he or she is having safe sex then who they're having it with doesn't bother me,

    Ideally I'd also prefer the be in a commited relationship instead of one nighters from an sti point of view

    I'd give him a huge hug and thank him for telling me and I'd love him the same as I loved him before he told me. No big deal to me at all. If he's happy, I'm happy.

    I'd say I'm thrilled that they know who they are, give them a hug and feel happy for them and happy that they've shared it with me.

    I'd say "hey! Me too!"

    Honestly I hope I raise my kids so there is no need to come out.

    That my child can casually say "hey mum, can my boyfriend/girlfriend come over for dinner?" and I can say "of course, dinner's at seven!"

    The sexuality of my child won't factor in to how I feel about them, ever.

    I would be happy they could tell me and I would love them unconditionally (which I do anyway so it seems silly to say.)

    I'd thank them for sharing with me.

    And I'd ask them how they felt.

    Because frankly the emotions of being a homosexual teenager coming out would be far more overwhelming than those of a middle aged women - evening talking into account mama bear tendencies.

    It wouldn't upset me in the slightest and I'd feel happy they felt they could tell me. All I want for my kids is happiness.

    I'd tell them I'm so happy they could tell me and cuddle them.

    Inside I'd probably be devastated for them as it would introduce a whole new lot of hard things they'd have to deal with in life, I'd feel happy they could tell me.

    ETA, I'd also be happy they were comfortable enough to be themselves.
