Parenting is a science
It is unfortunate that during such perilous times in which we live, many fathers and mothers are still parenting by default. To parent by default is to use sense knowledge in achieving your parenting goals, rather than parenting education.
It is no more in dispute that the world our children now live in, is fundamentally and significantly different from the world their parents and grandparents grew up. The rapid changes which are taking place in the world are so mind blowing. Parents who fail to recognize the dangerous complexities which have been introduced to everyday living and who do not make the necessary adjustments in the way they approach parenting, will end up with “finished products” significantly different from what they intended. This will naturally be accompanied with its attendant disappointments and heartache.
The world has been irreversibly revolutionized by technology. Peer and cultural influences now travel at the speed of thought through the internet. Your child may be in his quiet and serene bedroom and yet be contacted and influenced by a crack head thousands of kilometres away, unknown to you. This influence may go on for weeks, even years without you realizing it. Knowing that such negative influences may be coming from several other sources through the World Wide Web, ought to make parents realize that parenting should be handled as a full time vocation.
The incidence of drug abuse, teenage pregnancy, sexual immorality, cultism, gangsterism, defiance and disobedience to parents and general lack of regard for authority, have become more intense and grown exponentially in the days we now live in. Further ravaging the present generation are vices such as internet fraud and its associated identity theft, electronic bank transfer fraud, violent and murderous rape, often committed by vicious gangs, heartless killing and maiming of rival cult groups and perceived opponents, adolescent suicide, often provoked by seemingly trivial issues. Some of them are openly announced or broadcast live on social media. This is a situation that should give today’s parents serious concern, because some of these vices were alien to the children of the 70’s .
It is in realization of the dangerous precipice to which today’s children are being driven, and the need to rescue them from the edge of the precipice that ParentingEdge was set up. Our goal is to persuade parents to embrace intentional and knowledge based parenting. Our role is to guide and enlighten parents to engage in continuous Parenting Education through the various programs we offer. The assurance we give is that if you participate in our programs, apply the principles and follow the guidelines, you can have that positive, predictable outcome with your children.
