Parenting contributes to a child’s holistic development which includes responsibilities of being a parent enumerated as a caregiver, nurturer, teacher, role model, and a financial provider. Parents aim optimal growth and development for their children that involves giving them adequate biological, emotional, and psychological growth. They take care of the biological needs of their children providing them physical care to meet those needs such as proper food, fresh air, enough sleep, recreation, and to protect them by ensuring a safe and nurturing environment. Mothers and fathers also aim to give their children the best education, teach them about life and the community, facilitate learning since they were young, and guide them to become the best of themselves.

Notably, there are four main styles of parenting: authoritative, authoritarian, neglectful, and permissive. Of these four categories, the authoritative style of parenting is the most efficient and beneficial to both parents and children. Authors Bianca Mgbemere and Rachel Telles have stated that authoritative parenting creates the healthiest potential environment throughout a child’s life, and allows them to cultivate skills such as self-sufficiency and time management.

Martin Luther King Jr. said “Everybody can be great, because everybody can serve.” When one looks at all the great people in history who made a difference, their greatness was in their service to others. Through service, we learn to lead and prepare ourselves to take our place alongside those who make a positive impact on the world. My parents raised me to be aware of my surroundings and to be of service to the community, starting with my family. Most importantly they taught me to act with foresight and without being asked.
“Positive education is defined as education for both traditional skills and for happiness” (Seligman et al. 2009). In the school 's interaction with parents, often it is heard that parents want their children to be achievers, confident, happy, successful and holistically developed.
