  1. It is a parent’s responsibility to love and care for their child, but also to prepare the child for adulthood. I’m not a perfect parent, but I try to teach my children everything they can possibly absorb. I do not live my life vicariously through my children. I encourage them to pursue anything they express interest in to the best of their abilities. It is awesome when they discover an interest that is also mine, but is equally awesome when the excel at something of their own choosing. Children need to be taught basic human functions to survive in the adult world: cooking, cleaning, laundry, basic auto repair, money management, respect and tolerance for others, manners, job seeking skills and more. We live in a gender neutral society and old fashioned, sexist, ideas of gender roles is outdated. All children need to be taught the same skills.
