(Serious) if you grew up with same sex parents, were there any differences that you noticed? What should a new, same sex parent make sure to be aware of for the child’s sake?

  1. That it’s okay to express yourself however you want and they will be right behind you, cause if anyone knows how upsetting it is to hide who you are it’s them. While ik some opposite sex parents do this, a lot do not.

  2. When I went to school that first day of kindergarten and other kids were being picked up by their parents. I was super fucking confused. Also was not treated well in school whenever other parents saw I had two moms.

  3. I’m a guy who grew up being raised by two moms and yes, I missed having a male role model a lot. Women just can’t provide that. But then again, there’s many boys who grow up with single moms and they face the same issue, so there’s that.

  4. (Hetrosexual person) If you grew up with opposite sex parents don’t just try to emulate the parent of the same gender as you. Make sure to be balanced in your approach to parenting. Using behaviours that typically belong to both the male and female parenting archetypes.

    This applies to all parenting tbh. not just same sex parenting. We have a serious problem with people trying to cling to gender roles in parenting needlessly.

    Edit: also don’t try to have a mum-dad and a dad-dad or mum-mum and dad-mum. Just be yourself, both parents should try to incorporate good parenting, the roles aren’t necessary.
