Are Today’s Parents Less Competent Than Their Own Parents

Once upon a time, society expected parents to simply know how to parent on their own. There were no courses, no training seminars, no books, no websites. Why is it so different today?

I wonder which is the cause and which is the effect? Do we perceive parents as needing more help today than in the past simply because the resources are available or have the resources been created because people suddenly need more help?

Perhaps it is a little of both.
