In honor of #pridemonth I’m honoring my sister, and the sister I never had.
Love as seen through the eyes of a 5 year old:
Does she know there’s an Uncle counterpart missing? Nope. My husband is an only child – so Uncle, is merely someone’s first name as far as she’s concerned. While I’m sure she just hasn’t thought to notice this is “different than mom and dad”, – and for all I know, my sister’s girlfriend can be another sister of ours, or a friend….the sweet and innocent mind of a 5 year old has no limits. BUT while we’re all prepared to encourage and answer all the questions she is without a doubt starting to compile somewhere deep in her “save for later” file, I’m going to share this #lesbianapproved secret on how to talk to your child in a relatable way about what it means to be gay….It’s simple, easy, second nature, used and expressed it EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. You ready?
❤️ L- O – V – E ❤️
Easy Peasy! If your child already expresses and knows what it feels like to love, you’re ahead of the game. If you think your child is ready for the next step (and maybe when they’re a little older) you can introduce important topics such as: equal rights, being yourself, what it means to not judge, and the importance of celebrating Pride month in June. 🌈
And if your child is like mine and requests backup materials here’s some great children’s books that can help you!
