Parenting is a journey that challenges us at every step yet it also gives us an opportunity to grow up and become more aware and sensitive human beings. In the present age, parenting has acquired more complexity because of rapid changes in our society due to digital media, changes in our family structures, pressure to succeed and dwindling sense of community. Thus, though each parent’s journey is unique, many parents feel marginalized as they do not conform to the clichéd stereotypes set by society.
Parenting with Courage goes the extra mile to define parenting as not confined to the silos of our individual homes but with a ‘call to action’ for our society to see all children as needing our collective responsibility, especially children who are on the streets or from underserved backgrounds, in institutionalized homes or part of juvenile programmes.
Therefore, the three main objectives of Parenting with Courage are:
- Advocacy for diversity and multiplicity.
- Taking a collective responsibility for all children in our society.
- Commitment to taking action.
