An Effective Parenting Styles Being a parent can be one of the most difficult jobs a person will ever have. It may be especially challenging when the child is in their adolescent years. Most parents want their children to become independent, productive and able to cope with the world. The older methods of parenting do not work in today's society. Teenagers, like everyone else, want to be treated with respect and seen as individuals with there own ideas.
Parents are often show frustration at not being there and being able to help their children in addition to not getting to see them as much as the teachers do. Parents may be reluctant to express their concerns because of cultural beliefs related to the authoritative position of the teacher. Parents may also be unsure of how to express their concerns to the teachers. Research shows that parents provide a passionate feeling that is highly personalized and comes with a history and a future. During a power struggle between a parent and a child, you will see emotions seldom seen by two people.
The short story called, "The Most Powerful Question a Parent Can Ask..." by 'Neil Millar' shows the most respectful approach of parents to their children rather than "Be-ers and Doers" by 'Budge Wilson' in many ways. I feel that the story by "Neil Millar" is told in a calmer manner of speaking rather than the one written by "Budge Wilson". Everyone grows up differently but the effects grow depending on the matter of time when you are taught to become responsible. Every parent teaches their child different aspects at different times. Some are earlier than others and some must be later.
Parenting styles are very diverse and usually reflect that of one’s own life experiences. In today’s society, parenting is definitely one of the most challenging and difficult positions a person can uphold. Individuals learn parenting from many different sources including their own parents, role models, society and life experiences. As a result of such sources or examples, techniques to parenting can vary greatly from family to family. The way a family is structured is defined as the parenting style.
The first parenting style is the authoritarian parenting style, also known as the military style of parenting. Parents that use this parenting style believe that parents should be strict with children. Structure is high and warmth is low. These parents believe that the child should do as told with no questions asked from the child and no explanation needed from the parent. Often these children act out in aggressive ways outside the home but are fearful inside the home.
Haila Jones To Spank or not to Spank As parents we use discipline to teach our children the difference between the right thing and the wrong thing to do. It is the parent’s choice what type they would like to use. There are several, different types of parental styles starting with: authoritarian , overly permissive , authoritative, and spanking (corporal punishment). There are different parenting styles depending on your culture as well. I believe that there is no right or wrong way to discipline a child, but there is a right and wrong way to behave.
Parents who are authoritarian do not expect their children to question why they say the things they say. They are very into social status, and obedience in their children. They like for their children to have a structured environment, providing minimal emotional support towards their offspring. Children who come from a house with authoritarian parents tend to be average in school and show no signs of problem behaviors. These children, however, have poor social skills, and show signs of low self-esteem, while having high levels of depression (Partner, 2009).
Permissive parents have children who, in many ways, share the undesirable characteristics of children of authoritarian parents. Children with permissive parents tend to be dependent and moody, and they are low in social skills and self-control (Feldman, 2014). Healthy Family System A healthy family system can be noticed by its living arrangement. The way a family live such as the size of the family can determine a good healthy family system Real life experiences and upon observation of my own, parents with one or two kids are able to give more attention to their children than parents with several children. Children who grow up in a household with just one or two children tend to thrive more in society and not be withdrawn oppose to children who grow up in a household with several children tend to have a lack of attention.
The children are the ones that will carry on our society and it is our jobs to teach them morals and values. The most important factor in children’s lives is domestic trends. Children are very impressionable and look to adults for guidance and role models. There are now many types of family units including: single parents, divorced parents, married couples, homosexual couples and other relatives acting as parents. Studies done by Sara McLanahan and Gary D. Sandefur, they had found that children raised by single parents were worse off in life than children that were raised by both parents regardless of race, educational background or if the parent was remarried.
Parenting Styles Brittany Patten Liberty University Abstract There are many different parenting styles utilized by caregivers in today’s world. Parenting styles may depend on location in the world, tradition, personal preference, or a myriad of other reasons.

Among the most popular parenting styles are authoritative, authoritarian, permissive, and other new-age parenting styles.
