Taking Care


 

Video Nation takes a look at a different kind of childhood through the eyes of some of our contributors. Share their experiences of childhood whether it's in a care home, with foster families or with step parents. Both the carers and those who were cared for give us a little slice of what is was like for them and how their different kind of childhood has affected their lives.
