Parenting and contact before and after separation
This project uses data from the Millennium Cohort Study (MCS) to examine parenting and contact before and after separation.
The researchers consider two questions: 1) What are the links between fathers' parenting before separation and contact after separation? and 2) Is the parenting competence of mothers affected by separation, and if so, does it recover?
Findings are presented in a report, Parenting and contact before and after separation, and discussed in the video and podcasts below.
