DS (15) has told me he is bisexual and has got feelings for a gay boy (16) whom he is friends with. I was shocked but hopefully I came across as understanding and supportive. I don't want to speak to any one in RL about this as even now I feel that I am breaking his trust. But I really need some advice as how to handle this.
If he was mine I'd probably say something like " Tell me something I didn't all ready know/guess " or similar to let him know that it's no big deal, whilst letting him know I had heard and was happy he could talk to me.If you want support I'm here and can find you the support you need if I can't do it myself but just be you.
However I'd expect also that in what ever relationship he makes sure the sex is legal and safe, jut as I would with his sisters.
I'm in a similar situation. DS came out recently and I was concerned about homophobia.
He said it's not a huge deal, but all of his friends are girls.
As long as DC know about safe sex and you talk to them about healthy relationships and potentially abusive relationships, I think that's the main thing. It doesn't matter whether they are straight, bi or gay.
I think it's great that you two have the kind of relationship where you can be open about this. You sounds like a lovely mum.
