ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the capability of educators to promote self-esteem and safety of children from the LGBT families in the U.S. Educators need to be careful on the language used to prevent emotional or phsychological damage to the child. Teachers need to review books that portray different types of families and must be able to adapt stories and songs that includes the LGBT families. Respecting and providing safety for the child is part of the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) Code that should be followed by schools in the U.S.
