Thanks for reaching out! It is fantastic to see that you are being so supportive of your daughter, both in regards to the bullying she's facing, and her sexuality. It will make such a difference for her, now and in the future, to know you support her
It's great to hear that she opened up to you and you were able to get support from the school. Did they come up with any kind of plan with you? There might be some extra tips and strategies for you here too.
You're certainly not alone in worrying about saying the right thing, it can be a tricky topic to broach. We actually recently chatted to some parents about their journey in supporting their child who is gay that you might find helpful to have a read through here. We also have this article that has tips on how to communicate when it comes to chatting about sexuality that could be useful too.
Let us know how you go and if you have any other thoughts or questions
