Product description


"At last, a practical book on lesbian parenting, including 'dos and don'ts,' sound advice, enlightening anecdotes, and plenty of resources. For Lesbian Parents addresses issues particular to lesbian mothers as well as situations universal to all new parents. A 'must' read for lesbian mothers and moms-to-be, as well as all those lucky enough to have such a family in their lives." --Lesléa Newman, author of Heather Has Two Mommies

"Enriched with practical and theoretical advice, first-hand experience, and professional knowledge, this book will help make a tremendous difference in the lives of lesbian parents. Personally, I couldn't put it down! I've read a lot of books on gay and lesbian parenting, and this one is truly incredible. I expect to turn to it time and time again as a valuable resource in parenting my own child. It is important that this book finds its way into lesbian-headed households, classrooms exploring diversity issues, and therapy offices all over the country. It is a comprehensive tool that provides a better understanding of the unique issues and concerns of lesbian parents and their children." --Kelly Taylor, Editor-in-Chief, Proud Parenting Magazine (formerly Alternative Family Magazine)

"This is an essential handbook for lesbian parents and those considering parenthood. Johnson and O'Connor's extensive background in developmental psychology enables them to offer deep insight into a variety of childrearing issues, concerns, and questions. The book is also a 'must' read for psychologists, social workers, and other professionals working with our growing population of lesbian parents." --Sharon A. Cuff, MA, MSW, CSW

"Lesbian mothers are surely pioneers, with few resources to turn to for guidance on the unique issues they and their children face. Reading this book will help lesbian parents feel less alone. Couple issues, child development, schooling, sexuality, gender, and religion are all addressed. Perhaps most important, the book offers invaluable advice and tips on helping children cope with homophobia in the wider world."--Arlene ("Dear Ari") Istar Lev, CSW-R, CASAC, family therapist, Choices Counseling and Consulting
