comment Can “The Giving Tree” be explained in a way that isn't an unhealthy lesson?
Maybe I was a weird kid, but I always read the story more like you than like the answers given below. I hated the book from when I first encountered it at like 5 or 6 years old.

comment The school has assigned reading I feel is inappropriate for my son to read. How do I approach this problem with the school and with my son?
Exactly what my mom did (with other books).

@JSBձոգչ Depends on the kid. The Hunger Games was the level I read at around age 10, and the content wouldn't have been a big deal compared to some of the other books I read.

comment How can a dad be both a mother and father
@OldCurmudgeon I think the term you're looking for is "gender roles"

comment Just found out my daughter might be gay. Now what?
+1 to both @Charles and Valkyrie; as someone who is gay, it took me about 5 or 6 years before I was confident enough to tell anyone in my family, even though I knew they'd all accept it. My mom later told me she had suspected for a while.

NEVER go to the other parent about something like this. You have no way of knowing their views on LGBT topics; their daughter could be intentionally keeping it a secret. Even if you did know, outing someone when they're not ready/without their approval is among the worst offenses you can commit.
