There are different parent styles that psychologist has discovered that parents use to raise their children. In the different parenting styles, the parents believe that they are bringing the best of their children, and they believe it is the best they can offer.
The reason for the difference in parenting styles has not been identified, and it is not impacted by the way the particular parent was raised. A parent who was raised using a particular style might end up using a completely different parenting style for their kids.
Common parenting styles
In this kind of parenting, the parent leads with an authority and expects the children to follow. In this style, there are set rules that are expected to be followed, and they are followed with no questions. The parent gives the children a set of rules and does not explain the reason for the choice but expects the children to follow.
The children in this parenting style follow a very strict rules set, and there is no room for democracy or negotiation. The children of such a parent end up being obedient but on the other hand unhappy because of following rules without any question.
This is a parenting style that is very democratic. The parent is the style the head and the leader, but they encourage questions and suggestion. Such parents will set rules but will go ahead and explain why they have set the rules. They will give room for suggestions and questions from their kids, and the kids will feel that they have a say.
When it comes to discipline, this parenting does it with love and without any harshness. The children will understand why they are being punished. This is the most successful parent style and bring up both happy and obedient children.
In this form of parenting, there are very few rules set by the parents. Parents have very low expectations of the kids, and this is why they rarely discipline the kids.
The parents expect maturity from the kids, and the children regulate themselves. This parenting style is not successful because it leads to unhappy kids who have a problem respecting authority.
In uninvolved parenting, the work of the parent is only to provide the basic needs of the children but on the other areas, they are completely uninvolved. Such parents are completely detached from the life of their children. These children have no self-control, and their self-esteem is low due to neglect.
