Based on your weekly readings from the course and any other credible sources that you find, answer the following questions:
1) Are modern parents doing a good job of raising their children?
This is a much trickier question that it seems at first glance. In order to respond, you need to ask yourself two crucial questions. First, what does it mean to be a “modern” parent – what are the challenges that modern parents face that make parenting especially hard in the 21st century? Second, you need to define what “good parenting” is. What is the metric we use to define success as parents?
The responses to this question are likely to be quite diverse, but that’s okay. An excellent response will address the two crucial questions, which lead to an answer that incorporates at least 3 of the weekly learning resources (include citations and references). In addition, find and incorporate at least one credible news article or journal article that supports your response. This article should be no more than 2 years old.
2) Refer back to the Week 1 discussion where you identified 2 or 3 questions about parenting that you wanted to have answered. Copy your questions into this discussion. Were your questions answered in this course? If yes, how? If not, how would you go about finding the answers to your questions?
