Parents play a crucial role in a child’s education. Their influence plays a vital part in the growth and overall development of the children. Strict and conservative parents may find it difficult to deal with the children nature, the child will be afraid to share their emotions and requirements. This affects their overall growth and performance. Liberal parenting provides equality to children but it affects their behavior and it would be difficult to deal with such youngsters. The parenting can be classified depending upon the parents’ approach towards their child discipline. There are different types of parenting and children will develop their behavior accordingly
- Attachment parenting: The children should feel secure and safe which gives a positive effect on both emotional and academic development. The aim of this parenting is to develop a strong bond between the primary caregiver and the child. The more time you spend with your child, the more you will be able to read and understand the child and will be with him when he or she needs you the most. The traditional mentality is attending the child’s need as quickly as possible will result in a spoiled child. As per attachment parenting, a child, whose needs are met quickly will give them a sense of independence to be competent in this world.
- Helicopter parenting: As the name says parents will be hovering over children. They watch and analyze each and every aspect of child activity with fear it can harm the child. It is normal for all the parents to have some sort of fears but in helicopter parenting, the parents will be overprotective considering fears. Tsuch parents will be constantly aggressive towards the world. Parents will not have confidence that their child can take self-care and they keep control to avoid any harm. They tend to cover children mistakes and perform all the children activities such as homework, phoning up their friends, etc. Children will be quite dependent on their parents and do not tend to take the risk or face consequences.
- Authoritarian Parenting: The rules set will not be apt and the punishment makes the children stubborn. The strict disciple, rigidity and hard and fast rules make the children harsh and insensitive. The children will not be able to express themselves developing aggression and short tempers. Authoritarian parenting is highly authoritative and follows strict hierarchy and rules without any possibility of deviation. They are highly conservative. There is no possibility of child-parent discussion. This parenting has a negative effect on children’s healthy social and emotional development.
- Authoritative Parenting: As the name indicates this style of parenting requires high behavior control. This type of parenting has been traditionally followed and the children grown under this style have shown positive behavioral and emotional development. Their academic performance is good. The child will be disciplined to be obedient and follow set rules. Children will have the liberty to think, but the final decision rests with the parents. The parenting style has logic and responds to children needs.
- Permissive Parenting: In this style of parenting, both parent and children are given an equal platform to discuss. It is better than authoritarian parenting. But this is not as ideal as authoritative parenting; the children are spoiled or became bossy. Children cannot mark their boundaries as they are raised to be independent. There are studies which indicate that permissive parents will find it difficult to deal with children behavior as teens and young adults. There will be low behavior control. Parents use manipulative methods to control children and avoid punishment techniques.
- Uninvolved Parenting: The children under this style of parenting will have low behavioral control and parent warmthness. The parents fulfill all the demands of the children and make them happy with all the articles as required by the children but will not be able to fulfill the emotional needs of the children, all materialistic needs are met. The parents have the least interest in children daily activities and there is no psychological connection between them.
- Instinctive parenting: This seems to be one of the effective ways of parenting where parents do the upbringing from the experience of their own childhood and the impact of the parents’ behavior and approach towards them.
It is common for the children to show tantrums as per the age. Parents should not give any negative feedback and should have a positive approach towards child behavior. If one parent has taken more responsibility and feel stress then share it with your spouse to get the most appropriate solution for it. Do not expect your children to behave maturely. Try to be a friend and guide to discipline them to be better citizens.
