Is ragisan.com for parents only?This site is for anyone who has a child in their life that they'd like to better connect with. Parents, aunts, uncles, friends, etc. are all invited (and encouraged) to join the village.
Is ragisan.com for men only?Ragisan is for all parents - both men and women although some content is written from and for a male perspective. Most men would appreciate and enjoy the woman in their life bringing to them a post they’ve read to get their perspective on it as a man. We hope that women will share the material they find interesting on the site with all the dads (and moms) in their life, no matter the relationship.
Is Ragisan.com for any specific race?Ragisan.com is for all races. Many of the perspectives are written from an African American point of view but are universally applicable. Spending time with people of all backgrounds reveals that our experiences raising children can differ based on many factors (race and culture being just a couple), but those experiences are more similar than not, and common across generations.
Your site contains information on just infants and teens – why these two stages of development?All stages of a child’s development require attention and commitment from a parent. The infancy and teenage years, however, have profound and unique qualities; the infancy years require a dramatic change to the new parent’s life, and the teenage years involves dramatic changes to the child’s life – both of these stages can leave a parent feeling like they’re on an island. Also, the stages are very much linked, although on the polar ends of development. Often times, the experiences parents have in the teenage years are very much influenced by the experiences during infancy. Parents of infants can see into the future challenges that could be addressed by a firm foundation in certain areas, and parents of teens can see how getting back to some “basics” practiced in earlier years could assist with challenges they’re currently having. And stay tuned – there could be more stages discussed on ragisan.com in the future!
