Parents have a legal and moral duty to rear their children. This includes providing for their sustenance and well-being, as well as their social, ethical, and personal development. In order to fulfill this responsibility, parents have to find ways to convey their principles, expectations, and regulations. Therefore, parents should aspire to raise confident and satisfied children who ultimately develop into adults who can function independently and contribute to the welfare of society.
