Challenges of raising a baby as a lesbian mom

Message length 300 characters recommended

Lesbian moms face many of the same challenges that heterosexual moms do with the day to day responsibilities of working, raising a family and maintaining a relationship with their partner if they have one. The only two challenges I can think of that they face would be the potential for their kids being teased by others who are ignorant (let's face it - kids get teased for just about anything these days) and not having a male role model in the house.

Talking with kids about what reactions to expect, if any, and how to respond to them is a good idea. Role playing and brainstorming responses are wonderful ways to help prepare them should they unfortunately encounter derogatory comments.
