Modern day parenting is not easy. In the earlier times, generations stayed together and the older generation would be around to guide and advice on the upbringing of children from health issues, to relationship issues to work issues. With families increasingly becoming nuclear especially in urban areas, the experience of the earlier generations is lost thus handicapping the modern day parents. Hence parents have to be coached by professional psychologists on the aspects of parenting that is difficult. Also we need to acknowledge that life is much more complex today with more number of choices thus compounding the matter of parenting. With family sizes shrinking, the number of children in a family also has reduced thus leaving the parents more focused on the few children that they have.
