Parenting

Parenting (or child rearing) is the process of promoting and supporting the physical, emotional, social, and intellectual development of a child from infancy to adulthood. Parenting refers to the aspects of raising a child aside from the biological relationship. Parenting is usually done by the biological parents of the child in question, although governments and society take a role as well. In many cases, orphaned or abandoned children receive parental care from non-parent blood relations. Others may be adopted, raised in foster care, or placed in an orphanage. Social class, wealth, and income have the strongest impact on what methods of child rearing are used by parents.

Monika Rawal - Beware! This can make you bad parents!
You might not want to be a ‘Helicopter parent’ who is nagging the child all the time and hovering on their heads keeping a tab on their minute-to-minute activities. But that does not mean everything you do or are doing might be the best for your child.Quite often you do things, though unintentional, which tend to weaken the bond you share with your kids.

The way these class 6 kids were fighting and abusing each other using the filthiest words possible, I don’t think I would have heard even the most illiterate village men talk like that. No shame, no limits and just going on and on abusing each other and even the parents. Shocking would be an und more »
