This report looks at the paper of Dr Sotirios Sarantakos, ‘Children in three contexts’, where he explored the relationship between family environment and behaviour of primary school children living in three family contexts - married heterosexual couples, cohabiting heterosexual couples and homosexual partners. The conclusions from Sarantako’s paper are that “married couples seem to offer the best environment for a child’s social and educational development”. Also for class behaviour more children of homosexual partners were reported to be timid and reserved, unwilling to work in a team or talk about family life. They felt “uncomfortable when having to work with students of a sex different from the parent they lived with”.
