Are you a parent? Do you strive to raise your child not only to the best of your ability, but to the highest extent possible? J.S. Dixon asks Will the Real Parents Please Stand? and take responsibility for the loving of, caring for, and teaching of the young people that have been entrusted to them. Dixon realizes that it takes a village to rear a child and that parents can be biologically, spiritually, or emotionally linked to children. She urges all those who care for children to wear the many hats needed to help them mature and grow: the nurse, the encourager, the teacher, the advocate, the provider, the nutritionist, the intercessor, the protector, and the friend. Once parents begin to totally take responsibility for the actions, attitudes, and physical well-being of their children, our children will become better acclimated and self-actualized members of society.
