About this work


"Our understanding of what makes a family has undergone a revolution in the last few decades, from same-sex parenthood to surrogacy and IVF. But what has the impact been on children? In this book, Professor Susan Golombok visits lesbian mothers, gay fathers, single parents, co-parents, trans parents, surrogates, and donors, and, more importantly, their children, to find out if they are as well-adjusted, happy, and emotionally stable as children from traditional nuclear families. And she discovers that the answer is yes - and sometimes even more so. Susan's work at the Centre for Family Research at Cambridge proves that any family set-up can provide a loving, secure home for a child - although, inevitably, the children from these families will often face prejudiced attitudes from others."--From publisher.
