Who’s Looking After The Children?

When parents separate and there are children involved, how easy is it to put the child first and limit any damage to them? Parenting expert Penelope Leach found herself in the eye of a storm recently over how advice in her latest book on family breakdown was portrayed, and joined Woman’s Hour to discuss her views last week. Today we want to hear your experience of splitting up and how you’re handling the relationship with your child’s father or mother. If your parents split up, how did they deal with it, and what’s been the impact on your life? Penelope Leach will be back in the studio with Jane Garvey, alongside Penny Mansfield, Director of the couples and families charity One Plus One.
