So I'm going to tell you a story
I am a nanny for an 11 year old girl and an 8 year old girl. They go to separate schools.
Well, every day I go to pick up the 8 year old from elementary school. I’ve been doing this for about 3 months now. Every SINGLE DAY I see these 2 little boys walking home. Every day one of them has his arm around the other, or they’re holding hands. Sometimes I catch them kissing one another on the cheek. I see them as I enter the parking lot and on my way out of the neighborhood on the way back to the little girls house.
I’ve seen them every day for 3 months. They look so happy. So finally today I asked Jaiden if she knew them. I pointed and I said “JJ, who are those little boys?” She told me this story:
“Oh! I never told you what happened!?” I told her no, she did not.
So she says
“That’s Aleck and James. They’re boyfriend and boyfriend. A lot of parents are mad about it”
I asked her how she felt she says
“What do you mean? They’re boyfriends and love each other. They do everything normal boyfriends do. They kiss and hold hands and they share their Oreos. I used to have a crush on James but he likes Aleck but we are still friends and sometimes they play tag with me at recess”
Just like that. Simple as that. From an 8yr old.
I asked her how old the boys are and she told me that Aleck is in 4th grade and James is in her grade.
I proceeded to then ask what she meant by the parents being upset.
She explained to me that some parents heard about the boys and said that it was unnatural, that they should be suspended or have different recesses and that their children shouldn’t have to see that stuff at school.
Most of the kids weren’t even phased.
So when you say “how will I explain homosexuality to my child?”
Maybe someone needs to explain it to you.
