(DAILYMAIL) — A new study involving 78 children of lesbian parents hopes to quash fears about homosexual parenting after finding that all participants are doing better in school and are happier than many of their peers.

According to the report from the U.S. National Longitudinal Lesbian Family Study, the teens surveyed have GPAs in the A- to B+ range, have numerous close friends who are predominantly heterosexual and consider their parents as shining role models.

‘Adolescents with Lesbian Mothers Describe Their Own Lives’ is part of a larger study conducted by professors at the Williams Institute, UCLA School of Law that has tracked same sex families for 26 years as it examines the progress of children raised by two mothers.
