We share an article about how to support a child if they are questioning their sexual orientation.



The aim of Pride Month is to give those in the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning, Intersex, Asexual + (LGBTQIA+) community an opportunity to embrace who they are and share their identity with the world. Acceptance and love are what Pride is all about, and whilst the emphasis is most definitely on having fun and bringing people together, it may also be a catalyst for reflection and discussion.

In this article, from School Notices, Alicia Drummond, a Mental Health Expert, and Founder of Teen Tips and The Wellbeing Hub, talks about how to support a child if they are questioning their sexual orientation.

Alicia said: “Despite living in a more tolerant society research shows that members of the LGBTQIA+ community maybe more vulnerable to mental illness than their peers. If you suspect your child is struggling, help them find a therapist who will give them a safe space to explore their emotions and time to reach the decisions which are right for them.

Supporting a child who is questioning their sexual orientation is vital, but it is also important to recognise that this can be a difficult time for parents too.”

Jo Forman, Seaford's Director of Safeguarding, Wellbeing and Resilience, said: "There's a web of pastoral support at Seaford and we are here to listen and to make students feel heard. If you’d like to talk, I encourage you to take a look at this infographic and identify someone that you feel comfortable with and ask them for a chat.”
