The modern society is full of diverse individuals who have equally diverse ways of living.
One of the prominent features of a modern society is the predominance of the gay and lesbian parents.
There are many facets of this lifestyle. It can be that a lesbian couple may adopt a child and take care of him. It may also happen that a gay couple adopts a child and decides to take care of the child. But the most common thing is that a man and woman, who are lesbian and gay, give birth to a child and stay together in order to give him a proper upbringing.
In all the cases, the parents and the elementary school have a huge role to play along with the k-12 teachers, in order to ensure that the psychological make up of the child is not disturbed. The elementary school and the k-12 teachers working in that school must ensure that the child of the gay and lesbian parents gets all the opportunities and the proper environment to study. These children need special care from the k-12 teachers and the school authorities, so that they do not become a person with a complicated personality. It is the duty of the k-12 teachers to ensure that the child slowly gets to learn more about their parents and what the terms gay and lesbian mean. This is an important part in their complete upbringing process.
The k-12 teachers must also give the children knowledge about the various sexual stereotypes so that the children get to understand their parents and the other they see around them, in a better perspective. It is important for the elementary schools to organize workshops and special classes for the children belonging to the lesbian and gay parents, so that they can get a proper picture of their own self, and also their parents.
These children have problems of their own, as many other students tend to tease them, as their parents are lesbians and gays. So, the duty of the elementary school and the k-12 teachers are to ensure that such teasing is totally stopped in the campus. The other children must be sensitized about the whole issue, so that they become friendlier with the children of the lesbians and gays.
