Parenting Matters

In this issue:

UNICEF Romania Representative Edmond McLoughney presents this issue of Unite for Children, arguing that good parenting require more than simply following gut instincts and timeworn orthodoxies.

National initiatives
What does good parenting consist of? Luminita Costache ponders the answer, and rounds up some of the projects UNICEF has rolled out in the recent years to help the people taking on the most important job in the world.

Far from being solely a family issue, the wellbeing of today's children is key to the future of any society. Raluca Zaharia outlines what is neccessary if a child is to grow up to become a happy, healthy adult.

UNICEF Supported Projects
Holt Romania lays out its multi-pronged approach to improving parenting, outlining the support it offers new mothers and fathers before, during and after the birth of their child.

Case study
Eight-year-old Sebastian's mother went to work in Spain three years ago...and never came back. His father reveals the strain of life as a single parent.

In the field
"Breast is best" goes the old saying by why? Debbie Stowe visits a Bucharest maternity ward and learns how a UNICEF initiative is helping to educate new mothers and facilitate new early bonding.

Romania's glitterati were out in force this summer to lend their support to UNICEF's telethon gala, which has generated crucial cash for the promotion and expansion of parenting programmes around the country.
