It is a great shame that more and more, the development of very young children is vested in care institutions. Parents who should be the primary caregivers for their children are less and less responsible for their upbringing. This leaves children light on for family love and nurturing, deficits that will leave them emotionally insecure.
I often wonder why some parents have children. Is it to do with fashion or do they genuinely want to be parents?
If the latter, many parents have difficulty in understanding or accepting the responsibilities that should go with parenthood. They want children’s but then pass them to childcare agencies, often for many hours each day.
Small wonder then of many of these children grow up feeling unwanted and unloved. What a shame that this should be the case.
