A lesbian mom’s post has gone viral on social media after urging teachers to stop saying ‘moms and dads’ to young children.
Associate professor Sirry Alang, from Pennsylvania, went to Twitter to explain that families come in all shapes and sizes and that not everyone has a father or mother – and some children have neither.
In the post she wrote, “ Teachers, your class convo’s are broadcast in everyone’s home. The number of times the teacher has said ‘your mom and dad’ to my child’s class is outrageous. ‘
“But a Brave Boy just said …” But I only told my grandmother at lunch because my sister and I live with our grandmother. ”

‘Then of course my kid jumped in right away and said,’ I don’t have a father and it’s okay because my mom said there are different kinds of families.
‘Even though I would like a father, but she’s gay. Gay means she only dates women. ‘ LOL. Now my business is out there. ‘
She continued, “But the teacher apologized and said she was going to say” parent or the adult you help at home. ” I have faith in this generation. ‘
The post quickly garnered over 83,000 likes and hundreds of comments from people praising her post.

I say ‘the adults who take care of you,’ said one, while a second wrote, ‘Your caregiver (s),’ it’s so easy to say, yet powerfully meaningful. ‘
Another suggested saying ‘your supervisors’, while another suggested ‘your parents’ as an alternative form of address.
Meanwhile, others took to the comments section to express their thanks for the Tweet.
‘Thanks for sharing. I appreciate it so much, “praised one, while a second said,” SO IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER THAT CHILDREN HAVE A VARIETY OF SITUATIONS! ‘
