What Is Your Parenting Style?

Aired On November 23, 2023

One of our core family values supporting our parenting style is being different. Embodying our uniqueness as it serves our family context best helps our kids understand why they may make different choices from their friends’ parents and why that is OK.

Emily sums up her research about the four core parenting styles. Dan points out the challenges of identifying the parenting styles you’re perpetuating from your childhood just because it feels familiar. He also highlights the need to recognize your ideal parenting style versus your actual parenting style. Identifying and understanding your own parent’s parenting style can also help to identify your own.

  1. Authoritarian: because-I-said-so style parenting, decision-making logic not shared from parent to child, relates to tiger parenting

  2. Authoritative: balance between structure and independence, related to lighthouse parenting

  3. Permissive: parents act more as a peer to the child, relates to free range and hands-off parenting styles

  4. Uninvolved parenting: limited interaction between parent and child

We’ve learned a lot about these styles from parenting books and especially one of our favorite shows, Supernanny, and conclude the survey by trying to identify our own style.
