Opvoednetwerken versterken het leerproces van ouders
Dutch policies supporting parents in child
rearing might take more notice of the ongoing
learning process of parents. Through informal
networks, parents support and advise each
other and thus strengthen this learning process.
However, parents sometimes lack adequate
informal networks. For example, these
networks may be too small to assist parents
in coping with everyday questions. On the
other hand, the questions parents face may
be too complicated for other parents to answer.
In both cases, the learning process of
parents may stagnate. Policy makers should
take notice of these different scenarios for
stagnation in the parental learning process,
and stimulate suitable forms of parental support.
