WHAT WOULD U DO AND COULD U ACCEPT IT? IF IT WAS ME I WOULD LEARN TO ACCEPT IT EVEN KNOWING I DISAGREE. I WANT TO ALWAYS BE HERE TO support MY CHILDREN IN ANY WAY I CAN. TO ME FAMILY IS THE MOST IMPORTANT

Well i would love my kids no matter what. But i would almost feel like somewhere down the line i was a failure. That i was a factor. I dont have anything against gay or lesbian people, but i would not want my kids to be. I feel its a choice. and the more "normal" it becomes, the more accepted it gets. the more gay and lesbian people there are

I would be there and supportive of my child. I am not saying I would want to watch them kissing or anything, but I believe they have just as much right to be happy as we do. They are my children, they will ALWAYS be my children no matter what choices they make. I will love them non the less.

I have never tried to think about it. I have no problem with gay people, after all I have many friends who are gay. But if we see it as a "problem" I think it wouldn't be satisfying and wouldn't accept it at once. Of course the best think to do when something like that is revealed by your child is to stand by him or her and help find the tracks.

Once your child is born, it no longer belongs to you. It is an individual person. If you start making demands or giving ultimatums, then you don't really love or respect your child as a person. I think that would make you a bad parent. No matter what my child grew up to be or accomplish or even if they were a murderer, I may disapprove, but my love is never ending....because they are MY child. And I want my child to have that security in my love all the days of his/her life. It is an unconditional love.

I would be cool with it because you should love your children for who they are.
