We asked moms and dads: How do you learn to be a parent? Here’s what they had to say.

The way parents interact with their children in the earliest years shapes their brain development for life. How do parents feel about this impact, and how do they learn what to do?

“You feel a lot of pressure on yourself to be the best parent.”

Through trial and error, from friends or family, and even from their child, watch how parents learn how to become a parent.
