There is a lot of misconception about what bisexuality is. Some people doubt it even exists and many parents think or maybe hope! Some people do first identify as bisexual and later identify as gay or lesbian.
Recently she told me she thinks she is bisexual. She says she is confused because she likes boys but none like her — and she likes her friend who is a girl. Amy receives regular compliments on how beautiful she is, but because of self-esteem issues, she considers herself ugly and overweight, which she is not.
One thing I DO know is that your response to her recent disclosure is critical. All teens go through a period of sexual identity formation. All human sexuality exists on a spectrum.

Please help me as I am devastated by the news I just got from my beautiful year-old daughter that she is bisexual. I do not have an issue with different sexual preferences whatsoever, but I am really sad for her as I know that she is going to be part of a minority group and this is never easy for anyone. I want her to be happy and she is very confident and clear about her feelings and choices regarding her sexuality.
By Blaize Stewart. One of the hardest parts of the coming out process for me was telling my family; not because I felt that they would react negatively, but because I knew that by coming out, I would be affecting their lives as well and changing mine. I had no precedent to look to in order to predict how the larger community might react to my coming out, which only added to the overall stress of the situation.
