Robin and Isabelle's home

Robin is a single dad. Isabelle is 10 and Robin is 5 and they both live with him full time. He has another son who is 8 and lives with his mother but visits often. After the breakdown of his relationship with Isabelle's mother, Robin was granted custody of the children and has brought them up on his own. Isabelle is actually his stepdaughter - she still has regular contact with her biological parents but Robin has raised her since she was a baby so to her he is not "stepdad", he is just "dad". They talk about life in their single parent household and how it feels for them.
The Listening Project conversations collectively form a picture of our lives and relationships today. Recordings were made by BBC producers of people sharing an intimate conversation, lasting up to an hour and on a topic of the speakers' choice.
