I enjoyed reading this article because children are my passion and this hits home with me. I liked how it gave the three ways of parenting, authoritarian discipline was more or less how I was raised. Dictatorship, what my dad said all six of us kids listened, and if not we were punished. There was no let’s talk about this, or discussions, his word was final and that was that.
Authoritative parenting sets rules but explains why those rules will be set, but in these cases it often turns into a shouting match or aggressive behavior between all parties. If this is done the right message will never sent in its true form. I have known many family’s that discipline this way and the chances of an argument are very high.
Permissive parenting, when the child is on equal ground and discipline is unacceptable. So issues are discussed between both parties and an agreement will be set. According to this article this is the most effective way of discipline. This way I took it upon myself to ask some people what they this would be the most efficient way to discipline.
