Decades of studies have shown that the parent-child dyad and the family environment, which includes all primary caregivers, are at the basis of the well-being and healthy growth of children. From birth, children learn and depend on parents and other caregivers to protect and care for them in their lives. The influence of parents can never be greater than during the earliest years of life, when the brain of a child is rapidly growing and when parents and the family environment establish and form almost all of her or his experiences. Parents help children grow and improve their knowledge and skills, mapping a course for their childhood and beyond health and well-being. Parents themselves are also influenced by the experience of parenting. Parenting, for example, can enrich and reflect on the lives of parents; generate tension or calm; and generate any number of emotions, including feelings of happiness, sorrow, joy, and frustration.
Parenting, in the most common instrumental context, takes charge of the young in training them to handle life’s tasks. Parents have childhood experiences and populate the environments that drive the direction and result of the growth of children.
Today’s upbringing of young children is taking place in the light of major ongoing developments. These include a rapidly increasing body of early childhood research, improvements in funding for family programmes and services, evolving U.S. population dynamics, and greater family structure diversity. In addition, technology and expanded access to knowledge about parenting are profoundly affecting parenting.
Parenting Matters identifies parenting awareness, attitudes and practises correlated with positive developmental results in children 0-8 years of age; preventive and focused methods used in a variety of settings that have been popular with young children’s parents and endorse the knowledge, attitudes and practises identified; and barriers to and facilitators for the use of practises by parents. This report provides recommendations for a variety of stakeholders to promote the wide-ranging implementation of successful parenting programmes and services, and for areas that need more study to inform policy and practise. It is intended to serve as a blueprint for the future of United States parenting reform, research and practise.
Parenting a kid with differences in learning may feel confusing, daunting, and sometimes lonely. A mother or father may have to work with intensely personal emotions, including anger or sorrow, and may become disillusioned with educational professionals who are unable to provide immediate fixes. There is a lot to discover, and an enormous amount of knowledge to absorb and understand about the specific learning needs of a particular child.
For parents, it is important to map out a roadmap from knowledge to advocacy that includes information on the rights of a child, remediation and accommodation services, and strategies for engaging with teachers and administrators.
Parents who have been through this journey understand that the road can be bumpy and difficult. It always begins with a feeling that as she (or he should be, our child is not progressing and we set out to find answers. It will take time, patience and tenacity to make this effort, but it is well worth it. The overarching aim should be to ensure our child’s most suitable learning climate, so that she can become a well-rounded, positive, independent learner.
