The Childcare Board has been dealing with an increasing number of cases involving same-sex couples.
This revelation from deputy director of the Childcare Board, Denise Nurse during a panel discussion on parenting in today's Barbados.
The panel also included political consultant Peter Wickham and director of Paredos Sheila Stuart.
Mr. Wickham takes issue with the fact that even though there has been an obvious shift in family dynamics, society still defines a family as a mother, father and offspring.
Meanwhile Ms Stuart wants to see more parenting classes on offer.
