Abstract
This chapter describes findings from a longitudinal study of single mothers via sperm donation and their children that began in 2011, when children were aged four to nine years old. Led by Professor Susan Golombok at the Centre for Family Research, University of Cambridge, the study investigates the wellbeing of mothers and children, parenting quality and the quality of mother-child relationships, and the perspectives of both mothers and children, in single mother families over time. Using an in-depth, multi-informant, multi-method approach, we have interviewed mothers and, where possible, children; administered questionnaires to mothers, where age-appropriate, to children, and where feasible, to teachers; and conducted independent observations of mother-child interactions at home. This chapter draws upon the data collected in Phase one, when children were aged four to nine years, and in Phase two, now that children are in middle childhood (≤ 13 years).
