What type of parent are you?
Family counselors divide parenting styles into three categories: authoritarian (a parents-know-best approach that emphasizes obedience); permissive (which provides few behavioral guidelines because parents don't want to upset their children); and authoritative (which blends a caring tone with structure and consistent limit-setting).
Here's a description from WebMd if you are unfamiliar with the specific meaning of each term.
I would like to say that I am Authoritative- because I am definitely a blend of the other two. I can be very laid back but I do not tolerate disrespect & harmful behaviors, especially since I have two girls and girls like to fight each other lol. I would say it really depends on my mood? My husband, however, is extremely permissive and it drives me insane! What do you think you are?
