Being a parent is one of the most important jobs we can have in our lives. Ironically, the role requires no degree, license, or training. Anybody can do it. Because of this fact, is there any wonder why many parents experience anxiety in fulfilling the duties of this responsibility. The truth is, everyone must learn how to be a successful parent and partners must learn how to perform these duties as a team despite likely having had very different orientations to what the position requires. Communication skills and values clarification are paramount in learning how to be an ideal parent.
