Thirty percent of the over 600,000 same-sex couples in this country are raising children (U.S. Census Bureau). Gay Parenting is the ultimate parenting resource for this growing demographic, covering topics from starting a family to the baby and toddler years on through major teenage hurdles.
Parenting is never easy. Gay and lesbian couples face unique questions and concerns:

How to handle the traditional roles of mother and father?
What can be done to legally ensure both parents have equal rights and responsibilities?
What are some of the ways to help children deal with teasing and homophobia?
Priwer and Phillips provide clear and direct answers to these questions and many more. Drawing on first hand experience, this insightful, thoroughly researched guide offers practical, essential advice for same-sex families.
