A Swahili proverb says that, it is easy to nurse a pregnancy but hard to raise a child. That is a clarion call to parents that their job in not just to birth a child; they must also bring them up. Going about it the wrong way might leave the children with emotional scars that may last till adulthood. As such, we shall talk about the different types of parenting as well as their emotional, psychological and physical effects on the child. Righting the wrongs done will enable you start afresh.
