Parenting challenges are never ending. So many of the issues we face as parents are things we were never prepared for. I am sure this question has come across your mind before even if you have never said it out loud. “What would I do if my children questioned their sexuality, sexual identity or gender?”
I cannot give you numbers about how prevalent this is in the Muslim community, but Muslim kids questioning or exploring their sexuality, sexual identity or gender is probably happening more often than we would like to admit.
In the work I do with Stones to Bridges, I address this very concern of a mother who reached out to us. Follow the link below to the Stones to Bridges website to check out my response to her and get my perspective on the best way a Muslim parent can approach their children struggling with this issue.
