For some, working out their feelings towards others and whether they are gay, lesbian or bisexual might be an extra pressure to deal with. All children and young people want to feel accepted and that they belong regardless of their sexuality.
It is important that parents help them work things out in a safe and supportive environment where they feel valued and loved for who they are. This guide focusses on young people who are lesbian, gay or bisexual.
Transgender or intersex matters are not the focus of this Guide as the issues can be quite different. Moving from childhood into adolescence is a time of great change for young people and their families. Changes in the brain and hormones bring about many physical, sexual and emotional changes.
Exploring sexuality and how they feel about others is one of the things young people work out during this time. The concept of who we are develops from early childhood. If your young person tells you they are same-sex attracted it is likely they have thought about it for a long time. Some say they have known all their lives. In the teenage years many work out what they are going to do about it.
Some teenagers struggle with fear and confusion before they are even able to admit it to themselves. Your young person is not likely to tell you they are same-sex attracted and risk your rejection if they are not sure. For some it is no big deal. It is just a part of who their child is. Some parents may have wondered about it and be pleased they can now talk openly.
Others might need time to adjust, but are happy their young person trusts them enough to share this part of themselves. Some parents might feel shocked, confused, disappointed, guilty or angry.
It may challenge their values and beliefs, especially some religious or cultural beliefs. They might feel embarrassed and anxious about the reactions of family members or friends. However, many parents come to realise their young person can live a full life no different from their other children, including having a successful career, a committed relationship and children if that is what they want. While having a same-sex attracted child can seem daunting at first, many parents find great acceptance and support in the community.
Life may be different but it can be just as full of the many joys of parenting. There are many terms used to describe sex, gender, sexuality and identity. It can help to ask your young person how they describe themselves and what terms they would like you to use.
Some common terms include:. When your young person tells you they are same-sex attracted, the most important thing is to make sure they know you love them. It also helps to:. They need your love, respect and understanding now more than ever. Parents often ask why their young person is lesbian, gay or bisexual. Are they rebelling? Are they trying to hurt you? Are they influenced by others? There have been many studies to find out what causes people to be same-sex attracted but there is no clear answer.
Throughout history there have always been homosexual people whether it was accepted by society at the time, or not. It is now widely accepted by the medical and psychological professions as a variation of human sexuality and not something that needs to be treated or changed. Our sexuality is what feels right and normal for us even if it is different from how others express these things.
This is the same for people who identify as lesbian, gay or bisexual. However, there is no evidence that parenting styles or family situations determine sexuality.
If it was about parenting style then other children in the family would be same-sex attracted as well. They may have experienced negative attitudes, been harassed or bullied, rejected by their friends or seen this happen to others. Your rejection might be too much to risk. It says something about your relationship that they have shared this with you now. It shows they want to be honest with you and include you in all parts of their life.
Sometimes young people tell their parents in an angry or accusing way because they are stressed and anxious about the reaction. They may worry about hurting you, or feel guilty about ruining your hopes and dreams for them. They know it could change how you feel about them. They might worry they will lose your love.
They are likely to have better physical and mental health now and in the future. It can strengthen your relationship if you find out what is happening for your young person and how you can support them, just as you would with any other issue. You could ask:. Young people who are rejected by their parents have higher rates of mental and physical health problems including risk-taking behaviour, drug use, self-harm, depression and suicide attempts. They are also at higher risk of homelessness if parents tell them to leave, or the stress and conflict becomes too great and they move out without support.
Parents can help by creating a safe home where everyone feels respected and that they belong, regardless of sexuality, by:. Everyone handles telling others in their own way. Your young person might not want to tell anyone else, or they may be happy for everyone to know.
If they decide to tell others, it can take time as they will have many different relationships in their life. They may want you to tell other family members, or they might want to do it themselves. It is important to respect their wishes. Many people assume everyone is heterosexual. Every day your young person might have to decide how to answer questions about their personal life. Community attitudes have changed over time to become more accepting and respectful of same-sex attracted people.
This is reflected in many of our laws. There are laws to protect same-sex attracted people from harassment and discrimination. Laws about adopting children and methods for conceiving vary across states and territories.
Despite changes in our laws and community attitudes, prejudice, rejection and bullying make life hard for same-sex attracted people. Young people who are same-sex attracted, or are thought to be, are three times more likely to be bullied or abused at school, work and in social situations.
Even if your young person is not verbally or physically harassed, they will have heard negative comments and harsh attitudes towards homosexual people.
Homophobic bullying in schools has increased over time, with cyber bullying making it easier to involve lots of people. Many same-sex attracted young people miss school which puts them at risk of not doing well or not completing their education. If your young person tells you about bullying, act early. Let them know it is your job to make sure they are safe. Talk with them about the best way you can do this. Even though they might be worried about you contacting the school, the school has a responsibility to prevent bullying.
