Definition: Parenting is the chosen style, method and technique utilized by fathers and mothers in raising (taking care of and supporting) their children.
Challenges/Issues: Parents are role models for their children—good or bad. Children imitate their parents. Parents teach their children about life and relationships by what they "do" rather than what they "say." Life skills to manage life as an adult are taught at home. Bad parenting is often the root of most of the problems found in modern society.
