July 7, 2006, Newsletter Issue #98: Parenting Styles

Tip of the Week

Parenting styles are often divided into three categories: authoritarian, permissive, and democratic. An authoritarian parent would get his childīs attention through punishment or bribes. A permissive parent would wait until the child comes to him to discuss something. A democratic parent would evaluate the social dynamics and get the childīs attention by figuring out what the childīs motivation is. Children want to learn and act appropriately. It is the setting which most often sets a child up for success or failure. Each of the parenting styles also apply to teaching styles.
