Should parents-to-be have to take parenting classes before the birth of the child?

  • Jeremiah Parent classes are needed

    All parents should be required to attend parenting classes before having children. Parents of any age should attend parenting classes so that they may be able to actually know the difference right or wrongs to raise their children. I also believe these classes should be provided for free so that they have no excuse of why they did not attend the class. All ages of parents should be able to take care of their kids why not give them a class so that they may be able to take of their child properly.

    I believe it takes a certain amount of skills to be a parent. I don't think that everyone is responsible to take care of their child. Most children are abused because their parents don't know how to properly take care of a child. People who are soon to be parents may no nothing of being a parent or even how to change a diaper, parents should be required to take some sort of parenting class prior to the birth of their child.

    Some examples of this may be the failure to use a car seat or leaving a child in a car all by themself. Some silly mistakes like this can lead to serious consequences such as kidnaping or death of their child. Parenting classes will probably not prevent all mistake but will prevent some parents from making silly mistakes.

    During classes in the future if parents have to go to a parenting class all the basic things should be told and or shown.

    Of course they should! Parents of all ages should attend this class so that they may be able to actually know the difference of right and wrongs to raise their children. I also believe these classes should be provided with child care funded by the government so that they have no excuse of why they did not attend the class. All ages of parents should be able to take care of their kids why not give them a class so that they may be able to do it right the first time.

  • Parents-to-be should have to take parenting classes.

    Yes, people who are soon to be parents should be required to take some sort of parenting classes prior to the birth of their child. In our society, we make people takes tests and jump through hoops to drive a vehicle, obtain certain professional licenses (for something as simple as cutting hair!), etc. So for that reason, I believe people who are bringing children into this world should have to take some preparatory classes.

  • Parenting classes for soon-to-be parents

    I believe it takes a certain amount of skills to be a parent. I don't think that just about any person should be allowed to have a child. Most children are abused because their parents don't know how to properly take care of a child. Some examples of this may be the failure to use a car seat or leaving a child in a car all by him or her self. Some silly mistakes like this can lead to serious consequences such as the death of their child. Parenting classes will prevent parents from making silly mistakes.

  • No, they shouldn't

    What is the point of going to a parenting class even though some of the thing the teachers may be incorrect? It is kind of like having someone else raise your kids the way they want to. It is unnatural for someone that isn't a blood relative and children also have different personalities that have to be educated differently

  • Some people know if they want kids or not .

    If you don't want to have kids why go to a class on what you don't want. I mean seriously, its probably likely that about 2% of the class that pays attention anyway. You would go to the class and then probably forget everything you learned once you walk out of the classroom. No one should be forced to take a class for something they will forget a year later when they might or might not actually have kids.

  • Absolutely - positively - not

    Think "back in the day'' our grandparents and their parents didn't have what we have today (such as parenting classes) and their children turned out fine. Just look at yourself. Yes, the world has changed, but when you think about it also( for my grown up) having to have a class before having a baby is telling GROWN PEOPLE when and when not to do GROWN PEOPLE STUFF.

  • Parents-to-be should not have to take parenting classes before the before the birth of their child.

    They should not because at a class it's the instructors opinion on how to take care of the child. You can learn by yourself when you have the child because natural instincts come in and push you to know how to take care of your child. Did your parents raise you right? Did they take parenting classes?

  • Parents-to-be should not have to take parenting classes before the birth of the child.

    Parents-to-be should not have to take parenting classes before the birth of the child. I think it would be wrong to force any parent to have to do this. There is not a handbook on how to raise a child and it should be up to the parents to figure this one out.

  • No They Shouldn't

    I do not believe parents-to-be should have to take parenting classes before the birth of the child. It is quite conceivable that people don't have the time to do such activities. Secondly, having a child is a learning process that stretches out for the remainder of ones life. Lastly, not all people agree on the correct methods to raise a child, so we shouldn't be selling people a supposed best method, when it may not work for them.
