Your student spends the maximum amount of the day with you. You are a big role model for them. Support them when they are called names like Hijra, Chakka or bullied or made fun of in school.
Your child may have told you he or she is lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender. This means that they trust you and value their relationship with you. Your support is very important to them at this time.
You may be feeling confused about who you really are, who you feel attracted to and the world’s reaction to being different. Learn more about your feelings and be okay with who you are.
