Do you think that being a parent is different today from being a parent 100 years ago?

I think that today care about children for parents is easier than 100 years ago. Because they have an opportunity to benefit from development in science, medicine, technology, production of articles for babies. And they have more information about upbringing. And 100 years ago was only 1 year to the First World War.

I think, today's care about children for parents is easier than 100 years ago. Because they have the opportunity to benefit (or to take advange) from the development in science, medicine, technology, production of articles for babies. And they have more information about upbringing. And 100 years ago was only 1 year to the First World War.

 

Well done! Keep it up!

Well done, very good English !

I think you are right with your arguments, but one thing isn't easier today : You are expected to be perfect all the time today, and every mistake of the children is made a mistake of you. That 't more difficult than in former times.

Yes, I agree. Sometimes excess of knowledge is like blockage. Parents can have obsession about behaviour, their mistakes.  Because they still hear about  responsibility for happiness of children. They still think about all steps, not about love.  So obsessions become more important than love. And role of parent is more difficult  than 100 years ago.

Thank you:) Have a nice day:)
