1. What are the different parenting styles used by families? Which do you think is better? Why?
Some parents chose to be strict and have their child disciplined
Some parents chose to be a parent who lets their child make mistakes because their understanding but shows the child whats right.
Some parents don’t care what they child do
The best type of parent to me is the parent that lets their child make mistakes and shows them whats right because, when the parent was younger they made the same mistakes so, they had to be taught what was right from that mistake so they’ll get better so, I feel they should give the child the same opportunity to learn from their mistakes.
2. What makes a person ready for parenthood? When should an individual consider entering parenthood? Who should postpone parenthood? Should everyone become a parent eventually? Do you think some people should not become parents altogether.
I don’t think you can judge when somebody is ready for parenthood because it’s their decision and some people end up forced into to parenthood. A Person should enter parenthood whenever they feel the time is right. I think kids around the age of 16-19 should postpone pregnancy because they are fresh out of school and 9 times out of 10 they are still living with their parents. I mean if they want to become a parent then that’s their decision that’s a question that isn’t answered with a yes or no.
