Parenting includes activities that lead to the support and promotion of physical, social, emotional and intellectual development in infants. Parenting is done till a person gets into adulthood from a child. In most cases, parenting is offered by the biological parents to the child although in other situations it can be done by older siblings, legal guardians, grandparents, family members as well as family friends. In situations where a child may be orphaned or be abandoned by the family members, he/she may be adopted by individuals who they are not related to but they offer parental care such as foster parents or orphanages. Licensing of these foster care families and orphanages is very important to ensure that they do not carry out illegal activities with these children hence the government and the society comes in to monitor and evaluate their work. Parental care varies among various parents with those who offer good guidance in all aspects to their children being known as good parents.
Wealth, culture, social class as well as the incomes are some of the factors that are likely to influence parental care offered to children. The wealth, social class and incomes play a role in parenting as in the resources and opportunities that are made available to the child or children. There are parents who might be travelling a lot affecting their parenting since they have little time to spend with their children.

It might be hard to get a good daycare where one can leave their child or children more so for a travelling parent but with proper search, they will be able to get a daycare near them. A good daycare provider should be able to love the children honestly and genuinely so that they can be able to take good care of the children. Taking care of the children requires that the daycare provider be a natural nurturer and warm to people where they can be able show affection to the children.
