Parenthood is a time of great joy. Yet, this can also be a time of great stress. Every parent wants the best for their child, yet solicitated and unsolicited advice from well-wishers can lead to a confusing situation. The right parenting style can boost the physical, emotional, social, and intellectual development of a child from infancy to adulthood. Parenting styles vary across ethnicity, race and historical time periods. To raise a child properly, a parent also has to know all about the various health issues and developmental problems that a child may encounter. They also need to know how to deal with various issues that are woven intricately into providing the ideal care for children from infancy onwards. Providing proper nutrition to a child is also an important part of parenting. This section includes in detail the different styles of parenting, children’s healthcare, caring for a child at different stages from infancy to toddlers to adolescents, child nutrition and much more.
