UCLA’s Williams Institute reports — according to an article published in the Journal of Child and Family Studies:
Adolescents with continuously-coupled lesbian mothers had higher
self-esteem and fewer conduct problems (such as rule-breaking,
vandalism, or getting into fights ) than adolescents with
continuously-coupled heterosexual parents. Across other indicators of
psychological adjustment, substance usage, and relationships with their
parents, the study found that adolescents from intact two-mother lesbian
families were comparable to those from intact mother-father families.
