The four parenting styles

I find myself to automatically learn more towards permissive. I find I tend to take the path of least resistance (avoiding crying if at all possible because that gives me anxiety).

But that’s not what I want to be!! I don’t want to be a doormat or a pushover. I don’t want her to always get her way. I want to set healthy boundaries with her. I want to be more authoritative.

I looked for authoritative parenting FB groups but couldn’t really find any that looked helpful.

Any suggestions or tips for me?? My kid just turned two by the way.
