Turnbull list this as one of the principles when creating partnerships with families, to be available and accessible, and sometimes this means rearranging other commitments, in order to show the family that you really are not only committed to them but respect their time as well(Turnbull, 2011, p.147).

Starr’s Grandmother shows the characteristics of authoritative parenting style because of how she treated her grandson. There are two types of parenting styles that parents use to support their children in their life. Authoritarian and authoritative are two parenting styles that clearly determine the development of children, but the authoritative style more often leads to a successful life. Ever since kids are born their parents already have a view on how they will teach their children to become successful. Authoritarian parenting style is when parents enforce strict rules and high expectations without being affectionate.
The parents’ main focus is on nurturing the child’s emotional needs (p.205). In the Authoritative parenting style there are definitely rules and ideas of how the child should behave, but the parents take a more diplomatic approach to parenting. Nothing is ever set in stone and parents negotiate freely with their children about the rules and repercussions. Unlike the Authoritarian style of parenting, these parents have a balance of “both nurturing” and discipline. Parents still have expectations about their children, but understand that they ... ... middle of paper ... ...esistant to rules set by strict teachers.
I was also raised to respect women, which is something you do not see often in American culture anymore. I was raised to open doors for women and let them have my seat. As a kid people do things because this is the way people are taught; once people grow up you realize showing people respect is the right thing to do so you continue to do so. Respect is important; however the most influential values I learned were kindness and the power of knowledge. As a kid, I was taught to work hard and have fun later; we were not allowed to leave the house to party or go out unless we had all our homework done.
Values are one of the most important traits handed down from parent to child. Parents often pass lessons on regardless of whether they intend to do so, subconsciously acting as the conductor of a current that ﬂows through their children and into generations beyond. This is the case with Ruth, James McBride’s mother and the subject of his memoir The Color of Water: Despite her disgust with Tateh’s treatment of his children, Ruth carries his values into parenthood, whether or not she aims to do so. One value Ruth instills in her children is the vitality of education in ultimately bettering their lives. When expressing her opinion about the lengths to which some white people go for money, she insists, “You don’t need money.
As a single mom, she was the main driving force in her sons’ life. She even became strict because she was serious about her sons’ education.

Because of her parenting style and her role as a single mother Ben excelled in school and defied the odds.
Carlos J Martinez-Tapia AP English and Literature Mr. Wood, 1st Period 5 December 2014 The Foundation for our Future Generations Today more than ever one can hear people boast about the importance of developing the future generations adequately. Parents typically have the child’s best interest at heart, however humans are made imperfect and mistakes towards child development are inevitable. My parents based most of their parenting, like most parents on the way they were raised. They would choose what they felt appropriate and what would be harmful to a child. Although, this may sound like a purifying system one cannot disregard the fact that this choosing on what is good and bad is mainly opinionated.
He was the strict parent, and my mother, who practiced the typical parenting style used in the United States (authoritative), used a more balanced approach. I would have to say that having both styles of parenting during my childhood had positive as well as negative aspects to it. As described in the text, I did indeed experience more anxiety and withdrawal perhaps due to my fathers authoritarian parenting. However, the positive aspects were that I did well in school and had the utmost respect for my father. I was taught to respect and even if it was out of fear, it worked.
She was forbidden to date again until she turned sixteen and she had to pay for the bottle out of her baby-sitting money. Her reputation suffered greatly until the fall, when another girl did something even more scandalous and people forgot about her. In the end, she discovered that she was completely over the boy and she learned a valuable lesson about how actions have consequences. I found this story very enjoyable to read. I felt that the story was well written and conveyed a realistic insight into what some teenage girls experience.
