They expect very strict obedience and do not tolerate disagreements or back talk. Their children are usually withdrawn and not friendly. Girls of the authoritarian parent will tend to be very dependent, while the boys will be unusually hostile. The second style is Permissive, as you can probably guess by the name they don’t mind giving permission to their kids to do almost anything, they also don’t require much of their children, and won’t hold themselves responsible for the way their children end up. Permissive parents just want their kids to be happy and do whatever it is they want to do.
Typically a parent would not endure in such actions, but it varies from parent to parent. When left with the situation of discipling their kids, some parents feel guilty for taking measures into their own hands, and other parents feel no remorse. The whole purpose of discipline on children is to set them in place. By that I mean to help guide the child down the right path to a prosperous life and responsible adult. If it means physical or verbal discipline, then it is all for the greater good.
There are so many parenting styles out there but in the end it is the parents choice to choose how they want to parent their children. In Mr. and Mrs. Harsh-Heart’s case on parenting styles they chose to focus on strict discipline, rules and harsh consequences with even resulting to spanking. This is known as authoritarian parenting. Then, we have Mr. and Mrs. Easy- Going and they don’t involve punishment because they believe in natural consequences so their children can learn a lesson on their own here and there. This type of parenting is known as permissive parenting.
As children we have our role to play and parents have theirs. Whether we do it with good spirits or of bad. Using the authoritarian style, permissive style or democratic style in the end the child being guided will grow up with the ideals and morals that he or she was given. At the end of the day if the child was given no freedom, all freedom or some freedom the end results will tell one if that really mattered or not. With that, we ourselves need to be positive human beings so the generations to come can look upon us as examples.
Authoritative and authoritarian parents hold high expectations of children. The overly strict authoritarian parent expects their children not to question their authority and leaves little room for freedom of expression. In contrast, the permissive parent holds few expectations or demands, yet allows the development of self expression. As a result, authoritarian children are apt to rely on voices of authority and lack spontaneity, while permissive children may find it difficult to control their impulses and are reluctant to accept responsibility.
Authoritarian parents are very strict, they have high expectations and set many rules their kids have to follow with no options otherwise they will get punished in different ways with little to no explanation. This type of parenting style is not responsive. Permissive parents are not strict, they do not set rules at all and if in case they have some they are inconsistent, they are very nurturing and loving. This type of parenting style provides more freedom to their children with fewer responsibilities and also, they listen to their child’s opinion on serious decisions. Authoritarian and permissive parenting styles are very different because the first one is way stricter than the second one.
Authoritarian Parenting In this parenting style, the parents establish the rules and expect their children to follow them without exception. Children have none or very little involvement on problem-solving situations and obstacles because their parents expect them to never veer away from the rules. These children are usually not given reasons for the rules set in place and there is no room for any negotiation. If the children would challenge the rules or question them, the parents usually respond with, “Because I said so.” Authoritarian parents may also use punishments instead of consequences (Boundless). Although the children follow the rules much of the time, it is possible that they may develop self-esteem problems and become anxious or
Authoritarian parents are very strict and leave no room for opposition; if there is opposition or disobedience the children are punished. They usually have high demands, a low level of responsiveness to their children, and a high value on the preservation of order (Tough love Parenting). Children of authoritarian parents are known to be very smart and obedient, but they lack self esteem, were more anxious and withdrawn, and were not very socially competent. Permissible parents basically let their children do whatever they want to do, discipline is practi... ... middle of paper ... ...make one feel better but can also lead to a solution. Using consequences help the children have a sense of responsibility.
However, Children raised by authoritarian parents tend to have poor social skills, low self-esteem, and depression in the future. The effects of this parenting style are greatly negative. (“Consistent Parenting Advice.” 2009). Permissive parents have a much laid back approach. The child is encouraged to make his or her own decisions, and the parents are there to support those decisions regardless if they are right or wrong.
The parents are too demanding and directive but not really responsive towards their children. They are also status-orientated and children are expected to obey their rules without any explanations (Baumrind, 1991). Then, there is the permissive parenting style in which the parents rarely discipline their child because they have low expectations of maturity and self-regulation. Permissive parent is more responsive, non-traditional and lenient towards their child. They are nurturing and very open with their child (Baumrind, 1991).
