I found this chart fascinating:

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?
