PARENTING STYLE 4
Inthe recent past, parents and caregiver have deployed different styleto instilldisciple to siblings and ensure that they adhere to rules andregulations in their early age. The techniques include authoritarianmethods which call for strict regulations, the permissive style ofparenting that focuses on children independence as well asauthoritative parenting by offering an elaborate explanation forevery rule. The essay paper, therefore, discusses the parenting stylethat my parents used, the way such method impacted my life and theparenting approach I will choose after reading the research.
The that my Parent Used
Myparent used a permissive method of guidance because I was in a familywhere there were few rules to follow and my father or mother did notpunish me even if I did a wrong thing.Precisely, I could go to entertainment events at the age of ten yearsand come with different kinds of friends to our home without noticingmy parents. The scenario indicates the way I had autonomy, few rulesand independence from my parents at a tender age (Rinaldi& Howe, 2012).
TheWay Such Style have Impacted my Life
Thepositive implication of the permissive parenting style was that I hada chance to practically learn how to socialize with different kindsof people and face real life issues. The adverse effect was that Iengaged in drug misuse at a young age because I had no authoritativefigure in my life (Rinaldi& Howe, 2012).
The I would choose after Reading the Research
Iwould select an authoritative parenting style to raise my childrenafter the in-depth reading and reflection of the study. The reason isthat I want to be an authoritative figure in the life of children andoffer an elaborate explanation to every rule I give them.
Thethree different parenting styles namely authoritarian, permissive andauthoritative methods are vital for instilling discipline inchildren, but in my view, the best one is an authoritative stylebecause it provides a platform for free discussion between parentsand children.
