Bernadette  Conrad - The Smallest Family in the World


Seven mothers and one father tell of their everyday lives

More and more mothers and fathers are bringing up their children alone. The rules of the game in these small families are often unconventional. Bernadette Conrad reports amusingly and candidly about her own day-to-day living in her mother-daughter group and the questions that keep coming up: Who can I confide my cares in? Who can I follow my dreams with? How can you quarrel in a twosome if you don't have a shoulder to cry on?

She compares notes with Cornelia Funke and Doris Lessing. And she visits eight mini-families in Germany and other countries – and comes across an amazingly varied and above all happy form of family life the resourcefulness of which seems to know no limits.
