A leading British doctor believes that people should pass a parenting test and gain a reproduction licence before being allowed to have children, in order to be suitable parents. Parents would provide proof that they are of sufficient maturity and financial resource to take proper care of the child.
A child born to some parents is a child better not born. A child is better born later to wiser and wealthier parents.
It is very difficult to predict for certain how potential parents will adapt to parenthood, because parenting is a fundamentally new and different experience to previous life experiences, often creating substantial shifts in the parents perspectives (behaviour). A reckless teenager may become a model parent, and a model citizen (e.g. successful and well-though-of business man) may become a tirant at home.
The Encyclopedia of World Problems and Human Potential is a unique, experimental research work of the Union of International Associations. It is currently published as a searchable online platform with profiles of world problems, action strategies, and human values that are interlinked in novel and innovative ways. These connections are based on a range of relationships such as broader and narrower scope, aggravation, relatedness and more. By concentrating on these links and relationships, the Encyclopedia is uniquely positioned to bring focus to the complex and expansive sphere of global issues and their interconnected nature.
The initial content for the Encyclopedia was seeded from UIA’s Yearbook of International Organizations. UIA’s decades of collected data on the enormous variety of association life provided a broad initial perspective on the myriad problems of humanity. Recognizing that international associations are generally confronting world problems and developing action strategies based on particular values, the initial content was based on the descriptions, aims, titles and profiles of international associations.
Non-profit, apolitical, independent, and non-governmental in nature, the UIA has been a pioneer in the research, monitoring and provision of information on international organizations, international associations and their global challenges since 1907.
