This positive parenting style is often seen as the “gold standard” of parenting. Authoritative parents are warm and responsive, but they also set clear boundaries.
This style often stems from a strict upbringing, and discipline might lean more towards punishment here. These parents are all about rules and obedience.
Children of permissive parents can feel that “anything goes.” These parents are warm and nurturing but often lack in setting boundaries or enforcing self-discipline in their children.
Sadly, uninvolved parenting is characterized by a neglectful parent and a lack of responsiveness. It’s like a gardener who waters the plants but doesn’t tend to their other needs.
