What kind of parent do you want to be?

Have you ever asked yourself what kind of parenting you had and how this impacts the decisions you make?  In this session we will be looking at the effects of different styles of parenting as we consider “What kind of parent do you want to be?”

What kind of parent do you want to be?  Are you an authoritarian?  Or are you more permissive?  

How you planned to parent may not have been something you gave any particularly serious thought to before you become a parent yourself or decided to conceive.  Beyond that is, vowing to do it differently to your own experiences, or to keep that family tradition just the same.  Perhaps your main concern was to never make your child do that thing you always hated growing up.

Or would you describe yourself as an authoritative parent?

During this session we will look at various styles and techniques of parenting, and the genuine impact they have on your growing, developing child. We will look at the structures and boundaries your child does need around them. And we will look at how you can offer this within a caring and nurturing environment.

This session is taken from our course: What Every Parent Should Know
