What is Parenting?
Parenting is the process of raising and educating a child from birth until adulthood. This is usually done in a child's family by the mother and/or father. Where parents are unable or unwilling to provide this care, it is usually taken on by close relatives, such as older siblings, aunts and uncles, or grandparents. In other cases, children may be cared for by adoptive parents, foster parents, godparents, or in institutions (such as group homes or orphanages).
