The U.S. National Health Interview Survey finds there was no increased emotional or psychological difficulties among children raised by gay or lesbian parents.

WASHINGTON — New research based on data coming from 2013-2015 from the U.S. National Health Interview Survey finds there was no increased emotional or psychological difficulties among children raised by gay or lesbian parents, but those with bisexual parents have lightly poorer questionnaire scores, Science Alert reports citing a study in Child Development.

The study involved 21,000 children aged 4-17 and was deemed more sophisticated than previous studies ab9ss it took into account each adult’s sexual orientation, information that was previously surmised based on parents’ gender.

A likely cause soon became clear. Once researchers took into account the parent’s level of psychological distress, the differences vanished, Science Alert reports.

In other words, any potential variation in the children’s mental wellbeing was probably a result of the challenges the parents face in a society that stigmatizes their sexual orientation and non-traditional relationships, and not as a direct consequence of their sexualities, Science Alert reports.
