    Parents do their best

    by

    By Family Lab We are at an exciting crossroad. As parents we cannot, and do not want to do as our own parents did. We are no longer tied down by traditions, neither do we have to resort to the use of authoritarian force or democratic tricks to raise our children. Although, these have been very popular techniques used for decades, they ought to be something of the past. Times are changing and so is parenting. These changes bring plenty of challenges. As parents we try really hard to do our best, and as a result we do well. We...

    Women have birthed babies successfully for millenniums. We don’t know if they were scared. Some of them probably were.

    Comment
    I recently had the opportunity to borrow those movies called: “Being Dad”. I was very positively surprised by the first one, but it also raised a whole lot of questions in me. The movie shows three or four groups of men talking about their experiences and it is really relaxed and, I think, quite honest talk.
