Parenting Education - Preparing for Parenthood.
National Indian Child Abuse and Neglect Resource Center, Tulsa, OK.
The first in a series on parenting education, for American Indians, the booklet looks at preparation for parenthood. Learning to be a good parent begins when one is a child, watching our parents and copying their ways with our own children. The booklet recognizes problems and needs of new parents. Some problems are an unplanned pregnancy, loneliness and pain of giving birth, and when the caring of the baby is one parent's responsibility. Needs of a new parent include planning a pregnancy; both parents sharing in childbirth; both parents helping to feed, diaper, and bathe the baby; rest for the mother; and parents taking a short time to be away from the children by themselves.
