Types of Parenting Umberto Eco once said, “I believe that what we become depends on what our fathers teach us at odd moments, when they aren't trying to teach us. We are formed by little scraps of wisdom.” Parenting is never as easy as the books make it sound, and deciding how to raise children to fit the social mold can sometimes leave a parent stuck in the mud. Research shows that children who were raised under an Authoritative parenting style have more self control and balanced reasoning than children who are raised in an Authoritarian or Permissive household. Authoritative parenting is mostly recommended because it is a good median between Authoritarian and Permissive parenting. Authoritative parents are also known as “democratic” parents, they listen to their child's point of view on a situation. Instead of saying “No,” an authoritative parent will offer reason as to why they said no. Children who are raised in an authoritative home are more likely to have better self confidence, and even more likely to obtain good social skills. Authoritarian parents are parents who set strict rules and expectations. “No” is a very common word in these parents' vocabulary. Normally children with Authoritarian parents fear their parents in a mild or harsh way. Adults who raise their children in an authoritarian manner most likely lived an unhappy childhood themselves. Children with authoritarian parents are more likely to have low self esteem, and more likely to be more violent and demanding outside of the home. Permissive parenting is the style in which the parent is more like a friend than a responsible, rule setting adult.

Permissive parents are more likely to raise a child who

The parenting style I would most likely be is a mix of Permissive, and Authoritative. I would be permissive for multiple reasons including the fact that I want my child to be allowed to do things. A child only has ONE child hood they should be allowed to live it. Being a permissive parent does not mean that you don’t take part in your Childs life or that you show low affection and care for them. It means that you actually let your child do things. I mean I’m also Authoritative because there…
The importance of parenting plays a huge role in the further development of the child. The way parents interact with their children has a direct effect on their development: Their level of confidence and self-esteem, their sense of security, their emotional well-being, the way they relate to others, how they deal with authority, and their performance in school are the huge factors I found. Parenting basically revolves around three things to lead to the effects above, such as limit…

unhealthy for anyone and can cause long-term effects to a person. No one should have to go through any kind of abuse that breaks them. Families are people related by blood or marriage, they are the people who show love to one another and not hatred. Parenting should not involve in any abuse.
Families can really lose the sense of love and comfort if a family is under enough stress to cause chaos. Parents are continuously exhausted and stressed from finances and problems at work. They also can get over…
If being a daughter or son seems difficult, I cannot imagine been a parent. Being a parent can be one of the most difficult jobs because nobody instructs us how to raise an intelligent and courteous child. Many parents want their child to be better than they were.
