Mother not ready to march in Pride parade with gay son


In today's society, the increasing diversity of family structures and values presents both challenges and opportunities for growth for many families. Recently, a reader named "No Proud Mom" turned to renowned columnist Amy Dickinson for advice, and her story touched the hearts of many.




Another reader shared a religious problem he encountered at a family gathering. When he refused to bow his head when his brother-in-law began praying, it caused some tension in the family. Amy believes it is good manners to respect the faith practices of others, even if you don't agree or participate in their beliefs.

These stories and Amy's responses remind us that understanding, respect and communication are key when dealing with issues of family, faith and sexual orientation. Every family is unique, and learning to accept and embrace these differences can make family relationships stronger and more harmonious.
