This week, Mombian.com‘s Dana and Helen use Jodie Foster‘s increasing openness about her personal life as an excuse to talk about why it’s important for parents to be honest about their families. How does being out (or not) impact children’s sense of self? How can it aid parents and children in everyday interactions? Are there circumstances when it’s best not to be out?
They also recommend a book that should be on the shelves of every LGBT parent (and their older children) to help children talk about their families on their own terms.
