I hope it is ok that I am posting this.
One of DS's best friends comes from a family with two moms. We met through a MOMS group. I have only met one of the moms, and she is one of my closest mommy friends. DS1 (3 years old) has been asking a lot of family-type questions, like he will ask other adults "do you have kids?" He is very curious about his friends' mothers. Today, he started asking me if his friends have daddies. Today, we met up with his friend and mom, and he asked the boys and his mom if the boy had a daddy. The mom just replied, "no he does not." I was so thankful he did not ask why. I was close enough to hear, but not part of that conversation.
I know the why is coming. How do i explain this to DS while being respectful to the boy and his family, without judging, but at the same time promoting a Christian family as an ideal?
