There is probably no responsibility in life more important, rewarding, frustrating and difficult as parenting. One's mistakes are reflected in another person yet one's positive influence can lead to the happiness of another person and perhaps many. There are guidebooks, home-made advice, magazines and movies about it. Yet few do it well it seems although many may wish to. And just how should it be done? Should music be played even before birth or special schools be sought out? How can values be taught by many who have none themselves? How should parents try to counter the environmental factors which play a role in their upbringing? Is each generation dumbing down and if so, what can be done about it. This book presents chapters which attack these issues and more in a scholarly format.
