Accepting your child is gay

Accepting a gay Child

having a gay in the family

Parents of a gay child have to come to terms with learning that their child is gay. Learning your child is gay is often a great shock. Many parents cannot accept that the child they love is gay, is different. The parent feels ashamed, that they have failed, that others will mock them, that their child has betrayed them. Some parents reject the gay child and refuse to talk to them.

This script is designed to allow the parent to see things differently. This hypnosis script uses metaphor, visualization and Erickson suggestion to help the parent of the gay child to come to terms with having a gay child in their life, so that they can be comfortable with saying 'my child is gay'.

 

Accepting my child is Gay Therapy Script

 

Hypnotic Induction

   
  So settle back now, get comfortable... and close your eyes.....    
  Now take a deep breath, and hold it.... and .... just let it all go.... ahhhh...That's good...   Start releasing tension
  When you are ready.... take another deep breath...... and as you do... lift your shoulders up... and as you breath out.... let them slump down and relax.   Let go muscle tension
  Now lift your arms slightly.... and on the next breath out... let them drop down naturally.... and as those arms go down, relax your whole body   Let go muscle tension
  And I wonder if you could imagine what it would be like if your arms and legs had become so heavy ... that you just could not move them... that they felt as if they were made of lead... D Dissociation
  ...and just allow that heaviness to grow    
  ... and now I would like you to focus on your breathing.... just become aware of the gentle in and out of your breath... D Dissociation
  And as you think about your breathing... with each breath out... just allow your body to relax more... I Dissociation
  and you could become curious as to exactly how relaxed you can be...    
  ...and focusing on each breath out will let you relax and settle down a little deeper... each time you breathe out....   Deepening
  ...while you think about that....   Ambiguity
  and a little more relaxation after every breath... that's good.... D Deepening
  and continue breathing gently... relaxing....    
  And as an experiment, for the next ten breaths.... you could start counting each breath out... counting down from ten down to one.... as you breathe out... say the next number under your breath... or think of the next number... if you can... I Deepening
  allowing each breath to relax you more... and as you relax completely... as you say each number quietly to yourself... you might find that those numbers are disappearing....you may find it harder and harder to know what number comes next... and you can relax those numbers away... if you want to... those numbers can just disappear completely... with each gentle breath.... as you drift down and down... I Make the listener aware that they are in trance now
  And as you become aware of that at some level... that means that things are going exactly the way they should be...   Reassurance
  ... and your mind is opening now... D Seeding
 

Accepting difference as OK

   
  Things have been changing... and change is a fact of life...some things have to change... and everyone has to change with it...   truism
  You are feeling mixed feelings... you are going through a lot... anger... sadness... shame... shock... guilt... at what has happened... and that's to be expected...   empathy
Behavior those feelings are the first steps towards change... I Reframe
  Think of all the things that he could do... that was different... and think about how you would accept that change... thank of what you could accept... and what would be difficult... D imagine more changes
  Maybe you like blondes... but he likes brunettes... would that be OK? Would it change how you feel about him? Maybe you like fishing or bowling... and it turns out he doesn't... would that change how you feel about him?   Incremental change
  Suppose he chose someone from a different race... how would you go about accepting that? Would you think he was different?   practice changing
  Suppose he chose someone much older... would you learn to accept that?   more practice
Capability Because what he does, does not change who he is... who he really is... what has changed is your way of looking at him... and you can learn to change that too...    
Memory Remember the love you felt when he was born... that feeling is still there... he is still that same child...   Reframe
 

It is not your fault

   
  and as you are lying there... breathing gently... hearing these words... and every word ... every sound you hear is making you relax more deeply now... A Deepener
  and as you are relaxing in that chair... you can imagine being in another chair... in room with certificates on the wall... rich furniture... a calm professional room... V authority figure
  and as you are sitting in that chair... an expert is explaining something to you.... something important...    
  and says to you... 'It is not your fault'...'it wasn't anything you did... it wasn't anything you didn't do...' It wasn't anything to do with how he was brought up'... it wasn't anything that anyone else did to him either... it isn't something you can be protected against... '   quotation suggestion
Rule There are things that are outside your control... you can't control the color of eyes your child will have... or how tall he grows... or how smart he will be... these things are a random result...   examples of diversity
Rule No one is to blame... no one is at fault... no one did anything wrong... some things are what they are... they don't have an explanation... they just have to be accepted... I Acceptance
  There is no shame in being gay... it is as natural being left handed... unusual... unexpected... perhaps... I  
  but not everything turns out the way it was expected... what you expect and what you get is just how life works out...   Reframe
  Remember, it wasn't what he expected either... you wanted a wedding... grandchildren... a normal life....    
  Well so did he... and no matter what some people say... he has no control over what happened to him...   Reframing
 

See it from his point of view...

   
  'And think of it from his point of view... a child cannot choose the color of eyes they are born with... or the color of hair they are born with... '    
  'a person cannot choose their sexuality any more than they can choose not to feel hungry or choose not to go to the bathroom'...    
  'it is not a matter of choice... when the dice were rolled... when he was born... that's just how the numbers came up... some people win, some people lose... but everyone has to play... '    
  'and think back to what you hoped and wanted when he was born... what you wanted for your child was to be happy... a career... someone to love... someone to love you and help you as you grow old...    
  you can still have that... you can still help your child have a warm loving home... you still important in his life... perhaps more important than ever...   Reframe
  You don't have to understand... what you have to understand is how he feels...   ambiguity
  He is frightened... of what is happening to him... unsure of you... wants to be accepted like before...   Point of view
  he is still the same child you loved... brought up... he hasn't changed... he has been gay all along... you just didn't notice...   Reframe
  And ask yourself... what has really changed? He looks the same... sounds the same... he is the same... the fact that he hasn't turned out the way you expected doesn't mean you can't love him now... you loved him before... you accepted him before when he was gay... what has changed? What is changed that really matters? You still have your child. And your child still needs you...    
Behavior he needs you to reach out to him... to accept what has happened... to both of you... and you can help him...    
 

Metaphor - relations with your gay child

   
  I wonder if you can imagine a room somewhere... and many people there... and someone starts to tell a story... V Extended metaphor
  in a land far away from here... there was a king... a king who was strong and proud and created his kingdom by his own actions... who built a strong castle and everything was in place for his son to take over... to rule that place for many generations... and the king was proud of what he had done and sure of what he wanted his son to do...   Parallel situation
  The king trained his son to be a warrior like him... to act like a king should...   Expectations
  But his son somehow wasn't interested in all that... his son preferred a different life... a gentler life...   Refusal to live that life
Identity and the king saw everything he had worked for going to nothing... he felt betrayed and insulted... he felt he was being rejected... this son whom he had created and fed and loved, this son whom he had invested everything in... had rejected him and everything he stood for...   Feeling rejected
Behavior so the king refused to talk to his son... sent him out of that place... told him... 'you have made your choice... now live with it.... you are no son of mine'. He threw him out of the castle and banished him from his kingdom.   Reacts to rejection
  and the King withdrew into his castle ... and grew bitter... and life had no pleasure for him...   Suffers
  and time passed... and King tried to forget about his son... but he couldn't    
  and he began to neglect his duties... to let things slide... he was no longer the proud man he had been... competitors took advantage of his absence... began nibbling away at his kingdom... a bit here... a bit there...    
  until the day came when his grand advisor told him that the treasury was empty... and the people were unhappy... the lands neglected...    
  and the King was in despair...    
  Until the advisor said... 'but there is someone I want you to meet... '    
  and the King saw a young man... richly dressed... confident... successful... and then realized that it was his son... the boy he had rejected those years ago... had come back...    
  and the King thought back over all those years of loneliness... and embraced his son... and welcomed him back...    
  Even though I have nothing left... you are my son... and I leave it to you...    
  But the son said... 'I came here to honor you... I have worked so hard to earn your respect... I started trading in silks and dyes and now I own warehouses and merchant ships... enough to restore you to all you used to have and more... if you will only accept...   Accept
  And King said... I do accept... I accept everything you bring... but most of all accept you, my son...    
  and ever after, the future smiled on them...
