I've had kindergartners. And one had a kid in his class with two dads (so to speak.) And for the most part, at that age, it doesn't even occur to most of them that there's anything right or wrong with that, to the extent they even know about it. It just is what it is. Lots of other kids only have a mom. Or foster parents. Or guardian grandparents.
I'm not sure why we have to draw up pigeonholes from our own preconceptions right off the bat and force our kids into them. Let them have their own experiences and give them time to ask their own questions. That's the best way to learn (especially around good parents)
The state's role is the backstop, not the center. They're only there just in case the best method got skipped.
