  • How can parents help their children grow up to be better parents? They can model good parenting and be good with their pets. They can encourage them to take courses in high school that will help them function well in family life. They can encourage schools to offer courses that teach the kinds of family life things people need to know. I go to middle and high schools and talk to the students about breastfeeding. They can learn and teach them the things they need to know including stress management. When the couple becomes pregnant they can encourage them to take childbirth, breastfeeding courses, and parenting courses.

  • Let me gets this straight. You're asking how do parents help their children become better parents for their children?

    First of all, by setting a good example. Children regardless of age learn by example. Even if ultimately they make the choice for themselves in the end, they still learn by the example given. If an a parent is a bad influence there is a higher chance of that child being a bad influence as well. Especially to their own children.

    Second, parents should educate the FACTS as best as they can. Give examples and educate them on proper care, proper routine, etc. It's important for parents to be involved when their children have children. I'm not saying be a hellicopter parent, but I do mean to help guide them when they need the help.

    It's important to have support in any family, regardless if you agree with what is being/has been done. Show that you trust your child's instincts to learn from their choices.
