This paper explains the importance of parents in the process of child development. It examines the studies that indicate that poor parental guidance and attitudes within the family can have a devastating effect on the child's development in all areas, including cognitive, social adaptation and general mental and physical health. It further points out that many reports indicate a decline in contemporary society of parental guidance as well as in the traditional family structure. The paper concludes that this has lead to a further realization of the importance of the cooperation of parents, teachers, schools and other institutions in the development and education of the child.

From the Paper:

"However, there is a related point of view which states that while the above statement may be theoretically true there are many areas and ways in which this is not quite the golden age for children. These include aspects that detract from positive child development such as limited resources, financial aspects, lack of parental involvement and the evident dissolution of the nuclear family with high rates of divorce and marital problems that might impact negatively on the child. Some experts even go so far as to state that in reality this is also the worst of times in some respects for children."
