Child parenting is the outcome of interactions between parents’ limitations and capabilities against children’s needs and demands.
Parenting is learnt in the course of being parented.
Parents try to give the best to their children: All that they desired but did not get during their childhood, and also what they got and learnt from their own parents.

People are the most important element of children’s environment.
Childhood development is therefore markedly influenced by the psycho-social approach of the people in the family, and the most important people for children are their parents.
