What is a parent’s role in child rearing? Does each parent share in that development or does one dominate the other? How does the child benefit the best as a result of his parents’ presence in his life? Wouldn’t the number one benefit to the child be parents who demonstrate their love for him by showing him that he is the "apple of their eyes" (along with his bros and sissies)? And wouldn’t the second benefit be having parental encouragement wherein he is allowed to spread his wings in order to explore life’s bounty in a safe, loving manner…not forcing the child into the parent’s mold…where the parents try to re-live their lives through the child?
