Perfect for my child understanding

My son who is 11 showed me the drama book he is reading in class, he told me everything about what he understands about gay people, he told me how he never fully understood about what gay ment, but after reading the book, he wanted to learn more, so he asked his teachers, and friends about it.

I read this book because I was bored and it's in my 12 yr old daughters bedroom and I liked it, when she got home from school I asked her if she new what LGBTQ was and she said yes but not a lot so I told her more and then she said "mom I have a crush on my best friend sarah!" I smiled and told her that you are to young to date but it is normal to have a crush!
