My sixteen year old son has told me that he is gay. I’m OK with this. I think that everybody has the right to be who they are. The problem is that he wants to have his gay friends for overnight visits. I would never have let his eighteen year old sister have her boyfriend over when she was sixteen ( or even now.) I realize there are different issues here (my son can’t get pregnant) but I am not at all comfortable with this. How should I handle this?
You have certain values that you grew up with. These are an integral part of you. If you are not comfortable it’s OK to say “no.” Your son will just have to accept and understand how you feel. Have a talk with him and explain how uncomfortable this would make you. He may not like your rules but this is often the case between parent and child.
