Raising kids, or parenting is one of the toughest and most fulfilling jobs in the world — and the one for which you might feel the least prepared. [1]

Parenting or child rearing is the process of promoting and supporting the physical, emotional, social, and intellectual development of a child from infancy to adulthood. Parenting refers to the intricacies of raising a child and not exclusively for a biological relationship.

The most common caretaker in parenting is the father and mother, or in some cases only one.

However, a relative may have the responsibility of taking care of the child. This may be an older sibling, a step-parent, a grandparent, a legal guardian, aunt, uncle, other family members, or a family friend.

Parenting skills vary, and a parent or surrogate with good parenting skills may be referred to as a good parent. [2]

Parenting styles vary depending on a lot of factors, one of which is historical time.

Every parent wants to raise children who are happy and successful, but they also have to do it in the context of societal times-including but not limited to neighborhoods, the law, schools, media, best scientific and medical practices, and other ideas.

Times have changed and that means parenting has changed, too. Though the universal rules of child-rearing still apply, today's parents are dealing with an entirely new playing field when it comes to their children [3]. Even compared to just 20 years ago, things like technological advances and increasingly more expensive lifestyles have made being a parent a very different experience, both for better and for worse.
