‘Did You Know” your child’s behavior may be indicative of your parenting style? From the worst to the best parenting styles, choose the behavior outcomes indicated by your parenting style:
- Neglectful and uninvolved parenting may produce children who have aggressive behavior or conduct or attachment issues.
- Permissive parenting may yield children who lack persistence, and may be impulsive, rebellious, demanding, or dependent.
- Authoritarian (it’s my way or the highway) parenting may result in children who are anxious, moody, withdrawn, or hostile when frustrated.
- Authoritative (democratic) parenting is likely to produce children who have a healthy self-esteem, good self-control, and are energetic and happy.
