Today, one in three children in the UK grow up in a home with only one parent. Channel 4 Dispatches follows presenter Tim 'Sunday Brunch' Lovejoy, a divorced father of two, as he investigates the current situation surrounding shared parenting following divorce or separation. Tim speaks to a wide range of voices and explores the psychological effects of parental separation on children, hearing from teenagers about their personal experiences. The programme investigates the roles of mums and dads in 2013, asking whether current legislation in this area is up-to-date with the way in which modern families operate, and exploring different ways of sharing parenting post-separation. Tim uses social media to generate debate, much of which will be incorporate into the film.
