The world has changed dramatically from what was once the accepted concept of family. In the TV shows there were two parents and two children with the mother staying home to raise the children. In the world today a family often consists of one parent and one or more children. Although the makeup of a family has changed, the basic notion that children learn best from adults who are interested enough to be good parents holds true. Interested parents who connect with their babies and young children understand that the early years are most important. Good parenting does not have to be time-consuming or involve expensive toys and outings, just being there is the most important step forward.
