Crazy Parenting Style_Part 5

17 March 2014, 10:57

Each day of our lives, we are faced with countless chances and opportunities of parenting.

To some it is a maternal mandatory while to some it is a case of undesirable coincidence.

Whether we came to parent by the classic choice of family planning or the act of irresponsible sex indulgences, the tragedies of forced rape, the unforeseen adoption due to the death of our closest family member or the parallel incidents of sibling care, child-minding, nursery care-taking or simply by babies admiration instincts.

Undeniably so, we are all exposed to parenting one-way or the other.

Parenting is a procreated human nature and societal obligation that all mortals are subjected to in our daily endeavors and survival undertakings.

Either a child was born out of wedlock, which knew no morning afterpills or under honored marital vows, a child’s birth remains to be a life worth nurturing, upbringing or mentoring.

Parenting, above all bypasses all anthropological explanations and discoveries. Fibrous wombs of differing human species pass on the parental bait from one generation to the next.

Thus the act of parenting comes in different spectrum of shades, hues as blended and tinted by its family and cultural origins.
