Roles of Parents

Parents play a vital role in the development of their child. Parents are a child's primary provider of encouragement, support and guidance. Every child deserves to be brought up in a nurturing environment. Parents are a child’s first role models so it is important provide a positive environment.

Both father and mother have their respective responsibilities in developing a happy family life. It is important for parents take an active role in their children’s physical, moral, intellectual, emotional, and social development. Rearing a family is more than a partnership. Both parents are expected to help one another in providing physical resources (e.g. food, shelter and clothing), giving emotional support, making decisions and managing the family. Mother and father both serve important roles in the success of a family unit.

Sadly, not all marriages are successful. Sometimes irreconcilable differences force partners to part ways and lead separate lives. It's sad but in reality, children are often the ones who suffer the most especially when they get caught in between opposing parents.

A father's rights is equally important as a mother's rights. It is vital for parting couples to come up with common goals to ensure a good future for their children.
