In the wake of Father's Day, I am thinking about parenting and all that it takes and gives. I have always thought it strange that there is no training required to become a parent. In order to be allowed to practice most professions or activities, you have to take classes or go through varying degrees of education. Subsequently, you often then take a comprehensive test, and if you pass, only then are you allowed to do things like drive a car, be a nurse, work with electricity, etc. But to perform arguably one of the most important things people do - raise other little humans - you are not required to undergo any education or pass any test. There are no prerequisites for becoming a parent, no mandatory course requirements or examinations.
