Diana Baumrind’s theory on parenting was defined by four different types. The types are, authoritative style, authoritarian style, permissive style, and uninvolved style. My parents have an authoritative style. Authoritative is when the parents give certain limits and restrictions but keep it to a minimum and are usually pretty reasonable, providing reasoning for their decisions. This type of parenting style expresses tenderness and warmth. When the rules come into conflict with something, authoritative parents bend the rule more often than other types of parents.
Growing up, two group of people, parents, and grandparents, took the time and the energy to raise me. Both of them had different approaches when raising me. These approaches were different parenting styles. According to Baumrind, parenting style was the “[capturing] normal variations in parents’ attempts to control and socialize their children” (Darling, 1999). To put it simply, parenting style goal was to lecture, influence, and discipline a child. In general, there are four parenting styles with their own specific benefits and disadvantages. Furthermore, parenting style, granted the dynamic of the family was understood, can be identified in families.
Parenting causes a large impact in the upbringing of a child. Many cultures and different families believe in different disciplining styles, and each different kind of parenting style influences the child’s future. Although there are millions of families and each has their unique ways of raising their children, the different parenting styles can be classified into 4 major categories. According to research conducted by psychologist Diana Baumrind in the late 1960’s, the major discipline styles are Authoritative, Authoritarian, and Permissive (1967). Later on, a fourth parenting style, Uninvolved parenting, was added.
There are several different styles of parenting, authoritarian, authoritative, disengaged, and permissive, according to Diana Baumrind with different characteristics and goals. The two quantifiers of the different types of parenting are responsiveness which is the degree that parents are sensitive to their child’s needs and express love, warmth, and concern for them, and demandingness which is the degree that parents set down rules and expectations for behavior and require their children to comply with them (Arnett, 2016). These different styles of parenting produce children with different outcomes in terms of personality and behavior, and that difference is due to the amounts of responsiveness and demandingness that is present in each of the styles. These outcomes of the children will affect them their entire life, from how they raise their children to how they fit in at school and in their culture to their grades and social life.
Parenting styles are the way that parents discipline, raise, and show their affection to their children. The book defines parenting methods as, “how, and to what extent, parents seek to control their children” (Meyers & Dewall). The book also lists three different styles of parenting, defining them as authoritarian, permissive, and authoritative. The mindset of the child, how the child deals with social interactions, and the overall mental health of the child can all be affected depending on the parenting styles that their parents choose to use.
“The most beautiful thing in this world is to see your parents smiling and knowing that you are the reason behind that smile.” Our parents’ first concern; which parenting style to follow in order to raise up a well-developed, and well-mannered person. Matter of fact, a huge debate went over this particular issue, whether strict parenting is the right method, or being leant is the correct method. "There is clear evidence that parents can and do influence children." (Maccoby 1). Although, there are numerous factors that can affect the parenting process, or affect the way the parents treat the child (Bossard 333) (Maccoby 1). For instance, different home circumstances... the divided home, or the neglectful home, or the mother-controlled home, or may be the overly demanding home, or the home with too many bosses, so all these different home atmospheres are major factors that affect the development of any child (Bossard 333). In addition, the parents’ attitude towards the child is mostly effective in the formation of the child's personality (Bossard 334). Furthermore, the genetic effect of the child is very important, researches proved that genes are one of the most effective factors in the parenting process, and genes affect the child's own behavior characteristics, and also influences the way the parents are tending to treat their son/daughter (Maccoby 5). I will explain the three major parenting styles and will prove that it is not possible to assume that there is one best style to follow, because each home or family have their own special cases or circumstances that will affect the parenting process
Good parenting is key for the development of young children for the way they act, make decisions, lifestyles and how they perceive others. So, when it comes down to choosing the right parenting style, it can be a bit challenging for many new and old parents. There are currently four popular parenting styles that consist of authoritarian, neglectful, permissive and authoritative. Although there are only four main parenting styles, parents can still be non-decisive and have a mixture of the parenting styles. Within this work I will be explaining the four different parenting styles and the effects they have on children. As well as explain how my parents raised me and the changes I will make when raising my children.
The Permissive parents do not demand much out of their children, but they are very responsive and supportive of their child. The Authoritarian parents are the exact opposite, being very demanding, but not very responsive. Lastly, the Authoritative, they are the style in between. These parents understand that there needs to be a balance between structure and support. When you start to put each of these parenting styles in specific scenarios, it quickly becomes clear how the children are affected emotionally/psychologically by their
There are so many factors that impact a person’s development of the self. One factor that plays a big part in the development of the self is the parent’s personality and especially the parent’s child-rearing parenting style. There are four major different parenting styles that are mentioned in each study explored which include authoritarian/directive, authoritative/balanced, indulgent/permissive, and uninvolved/disengaged. Authoritarian/directive parenting style is associated with control and strictness. Authoritative/balanced parenting style is related to also being strict but is more assertive and less restrictive and intrusive. The indulgent/permissive parentings style typically is less demanding and has low expectations. The last parenting style is the uninvolved/disengaged parent who is also less demanding but are detached from their child’s life. After much research parenting styles can help to predict different types of development that may
Parenting is one of the things in life where there is not a rulebook and there are a lot of beliefs on how to raise children. Parents tend to raise their children based on their childhood experiences whether they were good or bad. Some parents raise their children just like they were raised and some raise their children differently because they don’t agree with the way their parents raised them. Parenting styles are based on the ideals and beliefs parents have about raising their children. Research shows that parenting styles directly affect how children behave in and out of school. Students may be presented with
Children will always gain support from their parents, but it is a matter of knowing what kind of support their parents give them. Authoritative parenting style is usually parents who sit down with their children and help them solve a problem. In Guidance of Young Children by Marian Marion, state how authoritative parenting style is a high demandingness and high responsiveness. Parents give a positive approach to their children. It is an example of a full house moment where parents sit and talk to their children from wrong to right. Children feel secure and safe when their parents show positive signs of being good parents. For example, Marion explains how parents can show care ness by not hurting their children and showing respect. It helps to communicate well among parents and children.
The parent I interviewed is a 28-year-old woman, in a relationship with the father of her 1-year-old baby girl. I asked the parent 8 questions. When asking the parent questions, I let them answer confidently first, then gave a scenario or oppositional view and asked how they felt afterward. Once she answered the first few questions, I instantly placed her under one parenting style category according to Baumrind: authoritative. It was really easy to see how the parent was thinking as a mother and that the intention of having the child’s best interest, was available. I was also able to anticipate the child is gonna be securely attached according to Ainsworth, due to the parent due to the mother having a securely attached relationship to her mother.
Parenting style (Maccoby and Martin, 1983) represents standard strategies that parent use in their child rearing. Parenting style is affected by both parents' and children's personality, not only the parents. Parenting style is about parents’ level of demanding and responsiveness toward child. There are 4 parenting styles which are Authoritative/Propagative, Authoritarian/Totalitarian, Permissive/Indulgent and Neglectful/ Uninvolved.
...uthoritarian, authoritative and permissive. These parenting styles are classified by communication, expectations of children, disciplinary strategies and warmth and nurture. Based on research, there is a link between how children are raised and the child’s behavior. The authoritarian style is the more strict, where the demands are high and punishment is strictly enforced. Authoritative parents enforce rules, but are emotionally supportive. They will listen to their children’s opinions and allows them to negotiate. Permissive parents have a “no discipline” policy and will never resort to punishing their children, but more so of bribing them with food and gifts to behave. Parents play an important role in the development of their children. No matter what parenting you choose, you will have a positive or negative impact on your child’s development. Choose wisely.
