    program or method

    This acceptance of children as equal participants in the family is reflected in various laws protecting the rights of children and in the social and public welfare programs.
    This new view of children and the frequent contact between the members of society has also resulted in an increasing interest in child-raising techniques. People today spend much time seeking the proper way to raise children.
    Nowadays, the socialization of the child in the United States is a two-way transaction between parent and child rather than a one-way, parent-to-child training ________.
    A. program B. method

    Which of the two words fits in the blank?

    WHY?

    Thanks for your help!

    Re: program or method

    Firstly, after 411 posts, I would have thought you would have understood by now that we don't just give out the answers. You tell us which one you would use and why, and then we will comment.

    Secondly, I have no idea where the "blank" is in the piece. I can't see a space. Please make it clear by putting a long underscore, like this: _______________ .
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: program or method

    Sorry!

    That blank is somehow gone.

    I thought both "method" and "program" make sense in this case. After all, a training program and a training method are both acceptable. So that's the reason why I turn to you.

    I didn't ask you to make a choice. I just want your opinion. Is "program" more relevant to "transaction" in the same sentence?

    Thanks again for your reminder and patience!
