This article in Child and Family Blog references a study with a small sample size, but is nationally representative and controls well for extra circumstances. This study states lesbians/bisexual women in same sex relationships devote more time to their children. This study verifies what almost every other study on female same sex parents shows, that the quality of these parents is as good or even better than heterosexual parents. I am always very happy to see this. Here I draw attention to the fact that lesbians probably in general have less stable long-term relationships then heterosexual couples. This is an issue that obviously affects children. But overall all, children of same-sex couples do as well or better then their peers. It’s just common knowledge at this point.
