I had a conversation with a friend to describe how my divorced parents raised my brother and me:
My mom just had kids; my father knew he was raising future adults and took care in his instruction.
I am looking for a single word to describe my father's view of raising children, i.e., with foresight or in the manner of a mentor and guide with an eye to the future. "Foresightly" and "mentorly" aren't really words. Is there such a term for this?
