A couple of years ago, I had a student in my class who has two moms. On occasion, when the kids discussed their families, she would mention this to her classmates. Many times during recess, this student would approach me and tell me that some of her classmates would say to her "you can't have two moms". It was a hard topic to discuss with kindergarteners because I didn't want to tell my students that you can have two moms if this went against what their parents believed or had taught them. I think this a topic that really needs to be discussed. I imagine many students are getting bullied and made fun of because they may have two moms or two dads. Many of our families have different make-ups. Regardless of what your family dynamics look like, you should not be bullied or told it isn't right. Being that the gay/lesbian community is growing, I can see this problem getting worse. In support of children of the gay/lesbian community, I wrote a children's book titled "Donuts for Dads". This is just a step. I'm hoping that many more people will bring awareness to this issue in the near future.
