We asked Pippa, as the mother of a gay son, if she had any advice to the questions and reactions families may naturally have when a child comes out. Hopefully it will will help some people prepare for the questions their parents may ask, and answer some questions family and friends may have.
What did I do wrong?
Nothing when it comes to your child’s sexuality. In other areas of their up-bringing, only you can answer that question. As I said before, this is genetic. In my opinion nurture may influence how and when your child deals with their sexuality, but it cannot change the ‘package’ with which your child arrived.
