THE ROLE OF THE SOCIETY
Parents and families could reject a child. Fortunately, the society is not known to reject babies. In fact, when given a chance, a good society takes over the responsibility of taking good care of rejected and abandoned children. It therefore turns out that abandoned babies are part of the problems of the society. Thus it is the role of the society to reduce the occurrence of this malady, and seek for a good solution if it occurs.
The unit of any society is the family. It follows that the role of the family in the survival and rearing of children cannot be overemphasized. The care of the unwanted baby has much more to be resolved as they pose peculiar immediate and remote problems.
