Parenting Around the Globe (article)

Here is an interesting article that points out just how varied parenting can be from culture to culture. Maybe the details of parenting are not as important as the structure and predictability that parents provide. Maybe it’s like a lot of things in life: showing up and participating is ¾ of the formula for winning. Maybe the details of the structure parents create is not as important as just “being there” and creating the structure. And while we are talking about just being there, maybe that is why families that have two parents at home putting their energies toward their children often have an easier time achieving success than just one.

Read about how varied parenting decisions can be in cultures around the world. Fascinating:
