Dear Doug Letters
I am 32 years old woman about to disown my 51 year old momma.
Why because she has lost her damn mind!
Two years ago my momma shocked the whole family and divorced my father. This came out of left field and no one could really understand. Well I think we have figured out the real reason. My mother came out the closet 5 months ago. She is a lesbian. Yes Doug I am shocked too! I am so hurt. I should have known by her recent changes in appearance and lifestyle tell the story. Her partner is also someone she works with and has recently moved in.
I have kids and don’t want them exposed to this lifestyle just yet. My mom says they need to be exposed to the real world. At what age should I have introduced my kids who are 7 and 9 to a different way of living or should I have to? Am I wrong for not wanting to explain to my kids at this age that people make different choices in life?
Should I explain it to them and let them go visit grandma and her “special” friend or should I keep them away until they are a little older?
I’ll just be damned!
