Admit it , lots of us have thought " wow i wish people had to pass a test to become parent "
Most of us agree that sex education is vital but it barely touches on parenting , do you think schools should have parenting education in schools .
Many pregnancies are "accidents " and can often take people by surprise throwing people into a whole new world , most of parenting is intuitive and based on what we have grown up with but a lot of the time what people have grown up with can also be what is now outdated practices while most of the time using those methods can have little affect on the child many have now been proven to be detrimental even dangerous .
So should teens be taught what is now recommended by world health authorities and parenting experts derived through solid studies and research and provided access to people, groups and sources of information for updated advice and support in order for them to one day become informed parents however they choose to do so , taking into account all sides of parenting and possibilities of individual children .
What would the pro's and con's be ?
