The Village – a private charitable initiative with the goal of helping orphans in South Korea.
How do we learn how to be good parents? Definitely by remembering how our parents took care of us when we were little. Subconsciously we compare and contrast our personal experience, and, hopefully, sift through it in order to pick the most effective parenting tricks.
If this is true, then how can orphans learn to be good parents? Many countries in the world have orphanages where adult presence is scarce. The orphanages I personally know of have the ratio of about 10 children to 1 adult. Still, it makes sense that children refer to all adults as “Mother,” even though adults hold various positions there (a teacher, a director, a nurse).
In other words, adults who happen to spend enough time at an orphanage to create memories for the children will contribute to the children’s definition of a family.
We hope to share some measure of warmth with the children who live without parents.
