It’s common knowledge that how you treat your child as they grow will make or break them as a person.
To give you an idea on how to raise your child, here are 4 of the most popular types of parenting style:
This type of parenting is where the parent’s decision is the only decision that the child will ever know. One of the perks of this type is the kid’s need to follow a set of rules closely because they know that there will be consequences if they don’t.
On the other hand, because their opinions are invalidated, these kids tend to have lower self-esteem and often times lie so that they won’t get scolded by their parents.
Permissive is the complete opposite of authoritarian. Here, although parents try their best to set-up rules, they don’t enforce it as much as authoritarian parents do. In this case, kids will most likely have behavioral problems because they think what they’re doing are always right.
This is a balanced authoritarian type. In here, the parents’ set-up rules make sure that their children adhere to it but at the same time tell them what the point of the rules is. They value their child’s emotions and personal opinion which results in balanced growth. What others fail to understand is that the kind of personality their child has also have an impact on how they accept these parenting styles. This is the reason why one parenting style might work on one child but cannot be the same as another.
