Part of being a parent is answering every possible kind of question (and kids do say and ask the darnedest things). Most parents have an idea of how to explain why the sky is blue or even where babies come from, or they at least know where to look for help.

That's not necessarily the case for sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression. These are subjects that the majority of parents simply don't have experience talking about, so it's no surprise that they approach them with some trepidation (if at all).

Conversations about differences are important to raising empathetic, respectful humans. You may never feel as comfortable defining "sex assigned at birth" as you do explaining why the dinosaurs went extinct. However, with a little guidance, you can broach LGBTQ topics with confidence and respect.
