Is it enough just to hope they learn from you parenting them?
I feel that children having siblings or at least being a part of a large extended family is very important in learning to become a parent. Lately it seems that large families are under attack, but it seems to me the almost annihilation of the large family is why the American family is almost non-existent. Its been my observation that we are putting children out into the world with no experience in caring for children. Probably, the most important job they will ever have. For example, I just recently an adult friend just had her first child and was totally clueless as to how to do anything for that baby.

You can easily figue out things like what to do for cradle cap. The most important things we teach our children is how to treat other human beings. That's why it's so important not to base parenting on punishment but to treat your kids how you would like to be treated. One of my children is now a parent and things like extended breastfeeding, the family bed, and attachment parenting have come easily for him and his wife even though that's not how she was raised. It's so wonderful to have my grandchild being raised the way I want him being raised. It makes it easy to care for him and for him to go from him home to my home.
