This report aims to provide insights about parenting mixed children to inform debates about family life and professional strategies for support. Focusing on mothers and fathers living together, it:
* Investigates how parents from different racial, ethnic and/or faith backgrounds give their children a sense of belonging and identity.
* Examines parents’ approaches to cultural difference and how they pass on aspects of belonging and heritage across generations.
* Explores the opportunities, constraints, challenges and tensions in negotiating a sense of identity and heritage between parents.
