There are four different types of parental styles that are generally identified by an expert named Diana Baumrind in the parental field. These styles are called authoritarian, relative, permissive parenting, careless parenting and authoritative parenting. There are significant differences between each of these styles and there is a much better style than the other three. In order to understand what type is the best parent style; However, we must first examine them all.
One of the types of parent styles is the authoritarian parenting style. This style is characterized by high expectations of compliance and compliance with rules and parenting. The problem with authoritarian parenting is that the rules and parenting directions often change when the parent wanted to modify them, so that the child never really knows what is expected. The situation could be described as unfair and threatening. Many children raised by authoritarian parents live in a constant state of fear. They tend to display less self-confidence and are socially removed. Some children could also rebel by openly defying parents leaving home at a younger age, from drugs, alcohol and sexual behavior at a much younger time, dating or marry a partner they know Let their parents disapprove and often be separated from their parents during adulthood.
The second of the four types of parent styles is permissive parenthood. This style is typically characterized by a warm and loving relationship in parent and child, but is imperfect by low expectations of behavior. In other words, the permissive parent is usually afraid to make the demands on the child much less maintain them to any standard. This type of parent simply wants the child to love them at the end of the day and will do everything the child asks to do. Children raised by too permissive parents tend to suffer from lack of concentration, immaturity and emotional regulatory issues. Children can not control their impulses and do not accept responsibility for their own actions. In case of problem, the child will simply blame someone else even if it were their fault. They tend to live and stay close to where they grew up, still dependent, at the beginning of adulthood.
Neglingent parenting is another types of parental styles. This style is better described as a step beyond permissive parenting. The negligent parent can provide food and refuge, but is usually emotionally unnecessary in the life of the child. A good example of it would be parents who never ask their questions to their child on their day, friends or education. A neglected child may have serious problems outside the house, but the negligent parent is never aware of them before something potentially tragic happened. Many times, children will grow feeling against their parents to be negligent and can often be far from them in adulthood.
The last of the types of parental styles, and certainly the one that is considered ideal, is authoritative parenthood. This type of parent holds high expectations of the child’s behavior while allowing the child to talk about these expectations. The rules and parenting directions imposed on the child are fair and clearly expressed. The authoritative parent teaches the child of the cause and effect, decision-making and self-sufficiency. The authoritative parents raising children who succeed, articulated, happy with themselves and generous with others. This results in being loved and respected by their peers and allows them to be generally rounded adults.
