What is a parent's role in rearing a child?

Air Date: 02/28/12 When a child is still in the infant stage, it is the responsibility of the parent to make choices for them.  Most parents research things like vaccinations, feeding and sleeping schedules, and so much more.  As children grow, parents transition away from making choices for them to allowing them to reach maturity through learning how to make choices for themselves.  This is a trying experience.  Many times, as a parent, one may want to make the choices for them.  This week, Cheryl discusses how to handle these tense situations and the importance of teaching, then - allowing your children to decide even when it sometimes leads to big mistakes.
