Benefits of Same-Sex Households

Children raised in families with same-sex parents do not show differences in self-esteem, gender identity, or emotional troubles when compared to heterosexual households.  Studies show that children in homosexual households do equally as well as those raised by a mother and a father. Studies have proved that kids raised by same-sex parents show no variation in intelligence, psychiatric disorders, self-esteem, or relationships.  In fact, some studies have illustrated that children raised by homosexual parents may have some advantages to their situation. 

“Some studies showed that single heterosexual parents’ children have more difficulties than children who have parents of the same sex.” Children in same-sex households do better when it comes to discipline, self-esteem, and dealing with issues at school. Homosexual households have a wider range on contact with extended family and tend to divide household responsibilities more fairly than in heterosexual homes.  When labor in the home is divided equally children adjust better and have a stronger relationship with their parents. Children in homosexual families tend to be more tolerant to differences, and are more in touch with their emotions and parents also tend to be more involved.  

Raising a child in a homosexual household is in no way detrimental or an inferior way to be raised.  Children in same-sex households can actually benefit from their family structure and have an enhanced childhood because of it.
