As a parent who has older and younger children and now also a young grand mother, I can ensure all parents that the gift of parenthood is one of the greatest. It is one of the most rewarding too. Houses, jobs, tv shows, even friends, they all come and go. But your children are for life. Your investment of attention, love, affection, patience, will come back to you with interest accured. The converse is also true. Measure for measure. So invest well. The children are our Heritage.

It is imperative that a couple invest in their relationship- yes even at the expense of a couple of nights a week without their kids and a couple of times a year a night away from them- in order for the kids to know that Ima and Abba need their time together as a unit. A couple needs to constantly be working on their relationship in order for their

Racheli, I'm not yet a mother but your article was very interesting to me- seeing different friends and the different ways they parents definitely provides food for thought and makes me wonder how my husband and I will raise our children. Having said that, I think that there is something to be said for Ima and Aba having their own time- I don't mean week-long vacations but I do mean a date once a week and a night away twice a year. This are things I have heard and learnt from mentors that I

  Clarification
 
Dr. Sears and Dr. Farber were on opposite sides of this. Dr. Sears was in favor of attachment parenting and co-sleeping.
