Overriding these five parenting functions is the ability to organize and manage all five of them at the same time. As would be expected, parents differ greatly in how they accomplish this overarching and potentially overwhelming feature of parenting. In carrying out these five functions, families are organized in a variety of ways. In many families, the functions are shared by two parents, with one parent responsible for one set of functions and the other for a different set, or, in other cases, with each parent sharing in carrying out each function or different aspects of each function.

Parental violations or negligence in carrying out these protective functions are child abuses.
