Parents admit to having little knowledge of good parenting.

According to a study done by the Institute of Advanced Studies in Culture the following statistics are true.

 "Though a minority of parents say they have “little clue what it takes to be a really good parent” (9 percent), “feel inadequate as parents” (21 percent), or believe that their children need more from them than they are able to provide (31 percent), it doesn’t mean that they are not worried about how they are doing as parents. The majority (55 percent) expressed concern about their effectiveness, admitting that they often wonder whether they are doing a good job at parenting."

As a parent educator I find most parents are doing better than they think. Do you have a question or a comment you would like me to address? Leave a comment and I will help out where I can.
