( - A new study by parenting expert Abbie Goldberg, an associate professor of psychology at Clark University (Worcester, MA), finds that the parents' sexuality is a non factor in the emotional well being and educational development of their children.  The fact is these children are very similar to children coming from traditional families.

Goldberg says the children of same sex parents can be  just as successful in terms of  adjustment capabilities and social relationships, and  they are academically competitive with their peers from more traditional households.  What's more, in statistical terms, these children are identifying  similarly to  their peers from heterosexual families as both homosexual and heterosexual.

Goldberg is a leading child development expert who has authored more than 20 studies about parenting, stress, and work, especially among diverse families.  Her most recent book is Gay Dads: Transitions to Adoptive Fatherhood (New York University, 2012) .  She has also studied the school-lives of children of diverse families, including the likelihood of them dealing with bullying.

Here is a link to Goldberg's research:
