Parenting is a challenge in these fast-moving times. With kids always connected to their mobile devices and video games, it is a different world for most parents than the world they grew up in.

However, same-sex parents have an additional set of challenges. While the legalization of gay marriage is opening doors to couples everywhere, it also sheds light on the difficulties these couples face when having children of their own.

What’s it like being “the other mother?” How do you answer questions your children may have?

That’s why I’m pleased to welcome Colleen Logan, Ph.D. and her blog, The Other Mother: Current Issues in Same-Sex Parenting to Psych Central. While juggling a busy career, Dr. Logan is also a lesbian mother. She’ll bring her thoughtful insights and experiences about same-sex parenting to her blog. You can read more about her here.

Please give Dr. Logan a warm Psych Central welcome over at her blog, The Other Mother, today!
