From Growing Up Straight: What Every Thoughful Parent Should Know About Homosexuality, by Peter and Barbara Wyden. Copyright 1968.
RAISING THE SEXUALLY SECURE CHILD
It has been mentioned earlier that many homosexuals come out of a sexually repressive home atmosphere, and others come from homes where they were sexually overstimulated. What is the sensible middle course?
The exerts are unanimous in suggesting that parents should do their best to answer questions about sex without appearing embarrassed…. Most experts believe it is not desirable to volunteer information on homosexuality to children but to alert to opportunities to explain the subject briefly and naturally.
Dr. Gebhard’s son started tossing around the word “fag” when he was about eight years old. Dr. Gebhard asked, “Hey, do you know what that word means?” Then he explained homosexuals this way: “Some boys like to have sex with other boys. It isn’t a good idea. People in general don’t like it and you can get in trouble about it.”
