Suzanne Brockmann On Raising Her Gay Son Jason

Author Suzanne Brockmann joined HuffPost Live for a candid conversation on how she dealt with raising a gay son.

Brockmann, whose books include the Troubleshooter series as well as the upcoming Do or Die: Reluctant Heroes, said there was little doubt her son Jason would turn out to be gay.

"We pretty much knew ... just watching him grow up," Brockmann, who is also an active PFLAG member, recalled.

When it comes to raising lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (LGBT) children, Brockmann believes parents who choose to educate themselves about the potential issues beforehand will be the most successful.

"I had done quite a bit of research through the years kind of to prepare myself for being able to talk to him about things like sex and sexuality," she said. "I wanted to make sure Jason learned about sex, but wasn't terrified of sex."
