What's your parenting style?

Luke, 7 months ago

Parenting styles and their effects on children interest me a lot. Researchers have identified four types of parenting styles, each effect our children in very different ways. Here's the names of each of the four parenting styles and a bit of information about each.

  • Authoritarian; focuses on obedience and punishment over discipline
  • Authoritative; creates a positive relationship and enforces rules
  • Permissive; doesn't enforce rules, allows kids to be kids
  • Uninvolved; provides little guidance, nurturing, or attention

My style is definitely authoritative. Answer honestly, which of the above parenting style are you?
