.....most important full time "Profession" in the world".....agreed, but my argument is that if it is the most important of all the professions in the world, how come parents do not acquire even the slightest of education and training to become parents.....comparing to any other such professions?.....I will encourage my fellow hubbers comments on this.Thanks.
You do have a point, the first step for the parents is to be concerned about this particular area; then resort to self learning, at least try to learn the ropes from the older members of the family and read the material available to improve as parents.
Long before I ever had children I studied up, pondered my own philosophy, and generally developed as much learning and education as I could about becoming a parent.
Having done that (and having said that I did it), however, I have to say I disagree with anyone (expert, guru, or otherwise) who calls being a parent a "profession". I think if you're the kind of parent a parent ought to be, you don't see being a parent to your own children as a profession. You see it as a relationship, a bond, and a responsibility - but "profession", no.
I think when parents take their relationship, bond, and responsibility as seriously as they should, it's an indication that they also have "the right kind" of love for their child that a parent should. They value their child and their role in their child's life. As a result, they make sure they learn what they need to, and they keep on learning as their child grows. The word, "profession", though - sorry, that word is an insult to anyone who truly has the right kind of relationship with his child.

We demonstrate and teach our kids to maintain physical health, how well do we model the importance of boundaries, balance etc.

It seems that parenting either goes one of two ways, a parent either overparents and harms the child, if you can call that parenting, or they don't parent and the child is running around and doing as they please. Where...
