Plot
More and more gays and lesbians are choosing to parent, and the challenges that accompany this choice can be difficult. The Queer Parent's Primer helps make the endeavor a positive, productive one. Through examples and interactive exercises, author Stephanie Brill encourages a proactive approach, with concrete suggestions on how to present the alternative family in public and private arenas and how to help children of these new unions resist gender stereotyping. Topics include creating a healthy family, coming out for good, finding culturally sensitive childcare and schools, and making decisions about spirituality and family celebrations. Also covered are single parenting, breaking up, and the legal aspects of protecting these special families.
