Beyond Biology: Rethinking What Makes A Family

A man, a woman, and their 2.5 kids were considered the foundation of a solid family, but new research says diversity in parenting is actually good for the goose and the gander. Susan Golombok, director of the Centre for Family Research at the University of Cambridge and a professional fellow at Newnham College, Cambridge, joins host Krys Boyd to talk about the outdated ideas we have about creating a happy home and the variety of parents out there who are thriving. Her new book is “We Are Family: The Modern Transformation of Parents and Children.”
