A School for Expecting Parents

There are hardly any traditional families anymore where knowledge about child rearing is passed down from one generation to the next.

This Frank Jochum, chief physician at Martin Luther Hospital, experiences in his daily work as a pediatrician: knowledge about child rearing is being lost. What once used to be passed automatically to the next generation young parents must now learn somehow else. Therefore Frank Jochum has called to life a school for parents - free of charge. Every night starting at 7 doctors of Martin Luther Hospital talk about issues that affect children under the age of six: sleeping environment, diseases, immunization, prevention of accidents, allergies, dental care, obesity prevention.

After nine evenings, the cycle repeats. Parents may join any time, giving birth at Martin Luther Hospital is not a condition.
