How to handle your LGBTQ+ child when they come out!

Sydney, Australia (CU)_ Coming out may be an extremely emotional and personal process for many, including the kid and the parent. According to research, children and young people are reaching maturity and coming out at earlier ages and in larger numbers compared to past generations. According to a 2013 Pew Research study, the typical age at which LGBTQ+ individuals come out to others is 20. Coming out is a turning point. It may be a massive outpouring of numerous pent-up emotions, including fear, hope, relief, and/or fury. Each coming-out is unique, and there are no right or wrong approaches. But, if your child comes out to you unexpectedly, there are measures you can take to make the process easier for both of you.

It is essential that you create an environment where your child feels comfortable revealing their identity to you. Even if you are OK with your child coming out, it is essential to have a full dialogue about it so that you and your child are both comforted. Regardless of how you feel about this situation, remember that your child has entrusted you with something significant and has only approached you after careful consideration. Appreciate them for sharing this with you, and urge them to continue discussing this crucial issue with you. Be available to them and be attentive to what they have to say.

Do not say this is merely a phase

Parents who cannot accept their child’s genuine identity frequently use this phrase to dismiss their emotions. This will make your child question whether they made the correct choice by coming out to you. If your child is open about identifying themselves in a particular manner, it is their decision and you must support it, regardless of how you may feel or view them. You may have your own sentiments, but give them a space to express their feelings too. Do not comment on their dressing, as they might feel embarrassed if they begin dressing differently. Let kids have their own experiences, but control them if they are doing something that might put them in danger or do them harm.

Do not insult them based on religion and society

If you hail from a religious family, chances are high that your child already feels guilt due to the contradiction between their identity and religious beliefs. Understand that our sexuality is different from our faith. Do not believe that the LGBTQ+ community is “western” or “illogical,” as you may not have observed someone from your generation publicly identified as homosexual. At this vulnerable stage, your child needs more attention and love from you. According to research by the Trevor Project, 29 percent of LGBTQ+ kids have faced homelessness, such as being evicted or running away. Keep in mind that they are still your kids.

Learn more to understand your child

It’s quite acceptable to have questions, concerns, and worries once your child has come out. This is an important time for you as well, and seeking assistance for yourself can help you support your child more effectively. Ask questions to learn more and to overcome your ignorance. Communicate with your child and join an online support group for parents in order to truly understand your child. This will strengthen your bond with them.
