Transitioning to be a Caregiver
Propagating one’s name has been the oldest occupation of humankind. Progeny - is why concepts like family, marriage, brotherhood have even come into existence. The requirement of having a generation that carries your name and work is why Parenting is a universal concept present in every culture on earth.
There are individuals amongst us who have devoted almost all of their lives to Parenting. But parenting does not mean only taking care of a child. Modern parenting extends to children, aged or disabled parents or siblings, pets, parenting in the community, and even foster parenting.
Since Parenting is a huge transition in life, it has been accorded the position of Theme of the Week for the coming week under the banner of "Transitioning to be a Caregiver". Savio kicks off the week with the 'Sunday Mega Feature' followed by other talented writers during the week. Kindly select your days and share with us the topics you’d like to write on.
While parenting children is the major topic, writers are encouraged to pick up sub-topics like parenting of foster children/relative’s children/ on the community level, taking care of aged parents or pets, frustrations, and demands of parenting too. We hope to see more of you in your articles than writing from a collective perspective. Happy writing!
