Hi. Im struggling with my nine year old daughter telling me say is gay. It stunned me for several reasons. First, shes NINE. Second, suddenly, seemingly out of nowhere, she is so savvy about the whole issue and lifestyle. Third, shes so very matter-of-fact and adamant about the whole thing. I feel like, and I know it could just be me, that a week ago she probably didnt have a clue about any of this. I love my daughter no matter what. If shes gay, shes gay. No problem. My concern is because of her age, and the fact that her awareness and knowledge about lesbianism seems so recent and sudden. Im wondering if shes even had time to process this and whether shes really gay or emulating a friend or some movie she saw, or whatever. I want her to know that I love her and accept her no matter what. But I dont want to inadvertently encourage her to think or feel things that may not really be her own true feelings. Im a single parent. Her mother took off when she was just two. I dont have anyone to discuss this with, and I live in this constant fear that Im going to react the wrong way with my daughter. I know time will tell, but in the meantime I want to be the best parent I can. Advice? Suggestions?
