Good parenting is good parenting, regardless of parents' sexual orientation!

Good news!  Good parenting matters more than the parents' sexual orientation.  Good parenting is good parenting!

From thinkprogress.org, there is a study that shows that adopted children of LGBTQ parents and same sex couples grow in homes where there is a certain harmony in parenting.  While straight couples tend to follow traditional lines of parenting, e.g.,  moms do one set of jobs, dads do another set of jobs, with LGBTQ couples, the roles are all redefined because it isn't attached to gender construction.

What matters most to young children? How harmonious we are as parents.
