He said: "More and more children are growing up in homes where the male authority figure will be fleeting or absent, where there will be what we now call 'guesting' parents, and where many parents are struggling with mental health problems or substance abuse.

"And while it is very far from being a majority of parents, manifestly it is a growing and troubling minority and often concentrated in particular areas."
