“I think my son is gay. How do I let him know that I have no problem with him being gay?”

Happy LGBTQ Pride Month!! This week’s #TipsOnTeens question is about parenting LGBTQ+ youth. We have a parent who seems to be convinced that her son is gay. Kent is here as always to answer your question!

“My son is 14 and I’d bet everything I have that he’s gay. He is always telling me and my husband that he likes girls, but I just don’t buy it. I’ve had a lot of gay friends in the past and I always knew way before they would come out to me. How do I let him know that I have no problem with him being gay? I just want him to be comfortable being himself around me.”
