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?
