Raising a child is overwhelming, thrilling, exhausting, terrifying, and joyous - and all at the same time. In addition to the adjustments that any new parents must make, lesbian mothers face numerous special questions and concerns. From coming out to your child to coping with the pressures of trying to be a lesbian super-mum, this book offers information and support for women forging a new path in what it means to be a family. The authors are qualified for the task as developmental psychologists who are also co-parenting two young daughters. With clarity and wit, they offer helpful advice on what kids need to know, and at what age; how to help them respond to questions and teasing from peers; ways to foster sensitivity in relatives, teachers, and others; how to talk to teens about their own developing sexuality; how parenting affects couple relationships; and much more. Chapters are packed with the insights and experience of lesbians who have come to be parents in a variety of ways. Also included are listings of useful web-sites, publications, and other resources.
