Topic: Parenting styles
We do have different parenting styles. Which of these are you?
The authoritative parenting style is about setting limits, reasoning with kids, and responsive to their emotional needs.
Kids raised by authoritative parents are more likely to become independent, self-reliant, socially accepted, academically successful, and well behaved.
Neglectful parenting, is a style characterized by a lack of responsiveness to a child's needs. Uninvolved parents makes few to no demands of their children and they are often indifferent, dismissive or even completely neglectful.
This is one of the most harmful styles of parenting that can be used on a child.
Permissive parenting is a type of parenting style characterized by low demands with high responsiveness.
Permissive parents tend to be very loving yet provide few guidelines and rules.
These parents do not expect mature behavior from their children and often seem more like a friend than a parental figure.
Authoritarian parenting is a style characterized by high demands and low responsiveness.
Parents with an authoritarian style have very high expectations of their children, yet provide very little in the way of feedback and nurturance.
Mistakes tend to be punished harshly.
