Parenting is an Art!

Parent Interventions

Nurturing children is an art!

The process of parenting starts when a couple decides to have a child. The planning to bring up a child is linked with many decisions. It includes a spiral of elements such as physical, monitory, social and psychological changes in an individual’s life.

Parenting is a process where parents and their children enter different stages of human life cycle, as time passes. At the same time, parents support their children’s smooth change over from one stage to another. During these transitions, parents travel with them as helping agents playing various roes – teacher, guide, and friend as well as become the role models.  Parents make a lot of compromises for their children’s welfare. It is indeed a challenging job at the cost their own comfort, needs, wants and resources.

Parenting is a never-ending job that follows changing the roles and responsibilities with each stage of the child.  The amazing thing is that the lovely relationship between the parents and children is the golden thread that keeps the family together and happy.


Modern parenting calls for maintaining a balance between transmission of cultural values and adaptation of new perspectives. The skills required to understand the new generation children and to learn careful application of disciplinary techniques to train and mould them as good human beings.  

The different roles played, the compromises made, and the inventions and innovations of bringing up new lives – altogether form the term ‘parenting’!
