What Type Of Parent Are You?

I found this chart fascinating:

Parenting Styles Graphic

source: Parenting Styles Info From BetterParenting.com

I was an authoritative kinda mom.  What about you?

Here’s the part I find interesting: Given the types of parenting styes there are, I wonder about grandparenting styles.

If I had to guess, I’d say we’ll grandparent with direction, but with way less stress because we aren’t the parents.

So will that mean as grandparents we’ll be permissive?  I think more so than we were as parents, but it’s kinda early in the game to know.

What do you guys think?  What kind of parents are/were you? What kind of grandparents are you?

I think I'm authoritative when they are young, but now that my big boy is older I can be permissive with him because I have taught him well and trust him. Thanks for sharing this great chart! Nikki rushedmommy.com

It can be true that as our needs change (and our children's) we move from one to the other.

Wow that is great info! Love the chart. I'm not sure which one I fall into for sure; guess I should ask my kids. I think I may have been all of them at times. I think my kids all turned out great and didn't really have many issues during the teens years. I thank God for that and give Him the credit. I sure can't take it! Thanks for lining up with me :)

I found it interesting too. How we get any of our babies raised is a mystery!
