Raising children is the most important job in any society, because “Kids are Our Future”, and parents influence their children’s development most.
Many parents are looking for the answer of “how to be a good parent?”, since every family is unique, there is no one-size-fit-all answer. However we do know that raising children is a hard work and most of parents want to try our best. Parenting is one of the well-researched areas in the entire field of social science. It has been studied for decades by researchers involving hundreds of thousands of families. How to define “A Successful Child”? What are the good parenting principles? What are some parenting styles?
