Abstract

Parenting can be a rewarding and joyful experience; effective parenting however requires a myriad of abilities and skills to perform. The Merriam-Webster Dictionary (2004) defines parenting as the process of taking care of children until they are old enough to take care of themselves. A more comprehensive definition provided by Davies (2000) notes parenting promotes and supports children physically, emotionally, socially, financially, and intellectually, from infancy to adulthood. From this second definition it is obvious parenting requires a broad skillset that fosters positive growth in children to make them prepared as adults to be resilient, psychologically stable, and intellectually capable to maintain their own care.
