Summary We hear from young people who've grown up in not your usual types of Australian families, to see how they're turning out.While the nuclear family is still seen as the norm in Australia, population statistics show that's changing, and "couple families with children" are no longer the majority household in Australia.Thousands of kids are growing up without both their biological mum and dad around.Some have two mums or two dads, others have been adopted from overseas or lived with a grandparent, some were conceived using donor sperm, or were raised in foster care.Recently the idea of what makes a normal family was hotly debated in Queensland, as the State government legalised surrogacy, extending those rights to single people and same sex couples. Critics argued that a child's fundamental right to enter the world with both and mother and a father is being denied.Insight will hear directly from the children of these families. We will be joined by young people aged between 13 and 25 who've grown up without both their biological mother and father around. We'll be finding out how their family works, and asking if they've missed out on anything because of it. Australian current affairs forum program, presented by Jenny Brockie.
