Everyone wants to be a good mother or father, but parenting is confusing. Everybody has an opinion on how to raise a child, and parents cannot escape their advice. But the vast number of books on parenting give conflicting recommendations. Do vaccinate, don’t vaccinate. Your friend says don’t give them sweets but your mother says sweets are fine. Should children be able to play freely in the dirt and climb trees or be protected and kept clean? How does a parent decide what to do?

Whether you are a parent or not, let us know what you think. Here are some statements about parenting and a video to watch of parents in action. Click THIS LINK, watch the video, and take a brief survey to make your opinions known. We’ll report initial results in a few weeks.
