“Before I got married I had six theories about bringing up children; now I have six children, and no theories.”
Parent: n. One who has begotten or borne offspring, one who has adopted a child.
Nature gives us the right to bring a child into the world but only Nurture gives us the right to call ourselves a parent.
A common misconception is that parenting comes naturally. It doesn’t. Parenting is a learned skill – whether it learnt through example, experience or education.
