From Library Journal:

Moving from self-centered concern to acceptance to advocacy, this primer for and by parents whose children are gay suffers from a lack of diversity in the parents' voices and a text that reads like a school paper. Sections of interviews are interspersed with solid information marred slightly by the authors' bias towards a biological explanation of homosexuality and simplistically rendered statistics. Libraries will be better served by Betty Fairchild and Nancy Hayward's Now That You Know ( LJ 5/15/79) or Mary Borhek's Coming Out to Parents: a two-way survival guide for lesbians and gay men and their parents ( LJ 8/83).
