Here are some pros and cons of some parenting styles. You don’t have to place yourself in one specific category. You might find yourself in more than one parenting style and that’s ok.
PRO:authoritarian parents are typically very consistent and clear in their expectations, making it easier for children to understand what they need to do.
CON: children of authoritative parents might have limited autonomy and are not given the space to develop and explore their ideas and preferences.
PRO:Children of permissive parents foster a close relationship between parent and child. Because permissive parents are typically more responsive than demanding, children often feel loved and supported.
CON: Permissive parenting can create an environment of chaos and inconsistency. If rules are not well-defined, children may become confused or even misbehave.
PRO:authoritative parenting encourages children to become responsible members of society by building strong social and emotional skills. Kids raised authoritatively are more likely to have good self-esteem, high levels of emotional intelligence, and strong interpersonal skills.
CON: On the other hand, it can sometimes be difficult for parents in authoritative households to consistently set clear boundaries and enforce rules. Additionally, parent-child relationships that are overly dependent on a shared sense of authority can sometimes breed resentment or bitterness if the child feels restricted or controlled by their parents.
