4 Types of Parenting Styles and Their Effects on Kids Your parenting style can affect everything from how much your child weighs to how she feels about herself. It's important to ensure your parenting style is supporting healthy growth and development because the way you interact with your child and how you discipline her will influence her for the rest of her life. Researchers have identified four types of parenting styles:1 AuthoritarianAuthoritativePermissiveUninvolved Each style takes a different approach to raising children and can be identified by a number of different characteristics. Authoritarian Parenting The authoritative parenting style: An evidence-based guide © 2010 - 2017 Gwen Dewar, Ph.D., all rights reserved What is authoritative parenting? The authoritative parenting style is an approach to child-rearing that combines warmth, sensitivity, and the setting of limits. Parents use positive reinforcement and reasoning to guide children. They avoid resorting to threats or punishments. This approach is common in educated, middle class families, and linked with superior child outcomes throughout the world.

What Is Permissive Parenting? - Experts Explain Permissive Parenting While permissive parents are often very responsive and loving, this parenting style is defined by having no rules.The term was developed by psychologist Diana Baumrind, who studied preschoolers and found their parents mostly fit into three main parenting styles: authoritative parenting, authoritarian parenting, and permissive parenting. (A fourth parenting style, neglectful parenting, was added later to address extremely uninvolved and emotionally distant parents.) Studies show children of permissive parents are more likely to show signs of anxiety and depression, aggression, have bad social skills, and do poorly in school. Permissive parenting can be bad for child development. "Permissive parents have a hard time setting limits with their children," says Laura Markham, Ph.D., author of Peaceful Parent, Happy Kids. "Therefore, parents are more likely to ignore bad behavior, and to 'give in' against their better judgment when their child gets upset.

Parenting Styles and Child Behavior — Psychology In Action More extensive research is critical to enhancing the field’s current understanding of parenting styles and the role they play in child behavioral outcomes. An increased understanding of the roots of different parenting practices, may enable the field to more effectively address the environmental factors that lead parents to adopt less ideal strategies. This research should be used to guide the development of more effective prevention and intervention programs aimed at fostering adaptive behavioral development in children. Because parenting programs have been found to demonstrate a large and sustained effect on early disruptive behavior problems (Comer et al., 2013), it is important to ensure these programs are widely available to at-risk families, and that these families are aware of their availability.

Authoritarian Parenting Style And Its Effects By Stephen Walton © 2012 What's It All About?... and What Are It's Effects The "Authoritarian Parenting Style" is an extremely strict form of parenting that expects a child to adhere to rules and regulations set out by the parents with little or no input or communication from the child. Smaller families in Singapore, leading to unhealthy parenting styles SINGAPORE: It really didn’t seem that long ago when the Stop at Two campaign was in full swing, warning parents in Singapore that “the more you have, the less they (each) get”. Yet, the challenge today isn’t to discourage families from having many children, but to coax or even cajole young Singaporeans to get married earlier and have them. Compared to a few decades before, family sizes are shrinking as new parents tend to have less children. Couples satisfy themselves with one or two kids being the norm, and three the exception. These days, the sex of the child is also of lesser importance.

When Parents Clash: Managing Differences in Parenting Style Many aspects of a person’s life can influence their parenting style. The way an adult was parented, as well as parenting books and other guides, are a few factors. A parent’s unique fears and hopes for their child are another major influence. Cultural factors, such as gender roles, the community in which the family lives, religion, politics, socioeconomic status, and ethnic norms also play a role. When parenting styles clash, children get inconsistent messages from their parents.
