We are all surrounded by a diverse group of people who do not go through similar circumstances. Join your hosts Jacquelyn Carter and DaLyah Jones as they highlight different parent styles.

This episode features stories from reporters Marques Mingo, Rebecca Banks and Grayson Kirkham.

Marques Mingo did a story on the different experiences on being raised by two parents and single parent households.

More than 110,000 same-sex couples are raising an estimated 170,000 biological, step or adopted children in the U.S. according to a study by the UCLA School of Law. Rebecca Banks explored the growing dynamics of same-sex parenting.

Although numbers of teen pregnancy are dropping, the experience of being a underage parent can be difficult. Greyson Kirkham did a story on what it is like to be a young parent.
