About this title

Synopsis:

Completely revised for today's parents, this definitive queer parenting guidebook covers topics from how to get pregnant to coping with teens Written by two experienced lesbian therapists and parents, this second edition of The Lesbian Parenting Book has been updated to reflect the contemporary cultural and political landscape, as well as current trends in parenting. Drawing on the real-life experiences of lesbian families and the latest information form family specialists, the authors present detailed, chapter-by-chapter information on each stage of parenthood and child development. New material includes information on circumcision, Internet safety, legal hoops for noncustodial parents, the facts about late-in-life pregnancies, moms working inside and outside of the home, and more. An essential text for every lesbian who is involved in--or considering--raising a family.

From Library Journal:

Clunis and Green have put together a wonderful guide for lesbian parents and parents-to-be. Drawing on their own and others' experiences, the authors address many of the problems that lesbian parents have to face. These problems vary from deciding how to get pregnant to dealing with homophobic ex-spouses, involuntary "outing" by children, and questions about why their family is so different. Clunis and Green devote much of the book to giving a quick but thorough rundown on the developmental stages children go through. They cover issues all parents have to face, lesbian or not, from prenatal care to how to live with an adult child who has returned home. The book does have a few problems-the chapter on dealing with confronting racism is unnecessarily preachy, for instance-but they do not detract from the overall quality. The appended list of parenting and gay and lesbian resources is particularly useful. This book deserves a place in every public library.
