I was wondering firstly how many people on these forums are parents? Hence I will conduct a poll.
Secondly I would like to know from people that aren't arents what they think a parent should be. For example what role should they play in their childrens lives.
I don't just mean from infant. I mean as they grow older, and in fact as circumstances change. For example if the parents break up etc. What do you think a parent should provide for their child so that they grow up to be balanced adults?
