When parents split up, how do you negotiate living arrangements? 50-50, moving house during the week? The week with mum and the weekend with dad? Now there is another option, favoured by Gwyneth Paltrow no less, called bird's nest parenting, that could be the perfect solution. Plus, with Australia calling for marriage equality we speak to gay parent and campaigner Jacqui Tomlins about why we need to stop kids from using the word "gay" as an insult. And what did your parents let you do that these days would be seen as bad parenting? Ahhh...the days of old..when you could smoke at 14 and have eight-year-olds sleep outside in New York City...
