If only parenting was viewed by society as being important! As important as being a school teacher, or other educator, for example. Because raising another human being is one of the most important privileges we ever have. If society recognised the importance of parents concentrating on child raising for the relatively few years we are privileged to have our children reliant upon us, our world would be a very different place. Maybe the pandemic will have a silver lining in the increased parental involvement benefits to families. It is already being remarked upon in studies of the babies born just before and during the pandemic. Parental attention, which is simply time, is so very important to children because there is no such thing as quality time. All time, lots of time and just being available all the time is so important to all children.
